Be Mine

All I want for Valentine's Day is to be halfway through my revision.

I've just worked some numbers, and it looks like if I can get through my "Act Two," by tomorrow I'll be right on schedule. That's about 43,000 words into the present manuscript.

The problem with this is that the second half of the book seems to need a lot more wrangling than the first, but I'm not going to worry about that.

I have a bit more free time in the second half of this month, and I've done some outlining that makes me confident I know where the story needs to shift, even if it will take some new writing to push it there. Hopefully the changes in how I've set up the first half will lead organically into the second.

Please, please, universe, send me novel love!

Sigh. My second half needs more wrangling too. Needing some novel love over here too.

I love your writing.

Writing takes time and talent. It is not just the first writing it is the second phase and the fine tooth comb..then someone else with an objective eye.
Way to go.

Thanks guys! Yes, the book has changed so much already -- it's taken so many drafts just to get a grip on the chain of events. So it goes.

I'm sending you novel love, G!
