This morning I made some more progress with my editing. I’m happy to say that I’m almost finished! Only four chapters left. My goal to finish by the end of the month is completely possible. I was worried there for a bit, working two jobs and trying to complete this at the same time seemed very difficult. I only had one day a week to myself, and even then I felt as though there was work that needed to be done.
After this stage, I’ll be able to complete my read through. I want to do this as soon as possible so that I can make any of the necessary corrections before handing it over to my “test” readers and editors. An extra pair of eyes never hurts. I also want to make sure that I’ve been consistent throughout the novel.
If I work hard enough I can probably get those last few chapters edited by Monday. However, I’ve got a wedding to go to tomorrow, so I’m not sure how much time I’ll have before and afterwards. Still, Monday night seems to be a reasonable amount of time.
I can’t believe that in only two months, my blog has reached up to fifty followers. That’s just…wow. I feel like I should buy a cake or something. I know that I post a lot of quotes and things, but that’s because I’m a perfectionist when it comes to my writing. Okay, I guess that I should go into a little more depth about that…basically I over edit and analyse things that I write. I’ll probably do that with this, but I’m just going to pretend this is more of a journal entry, so it doesn’t have to be formal, and follow a specific structure. Well, I’ve been meaning to post a few short stories and poems on here that I’ve written. I write these like everyday, so I figure I might as well publish a couple on my blog. I’m going to probably post an actual…snippet of something later today. I don’t know if I am going to edit it or not…it was really just a writing exercise so, I don’t think it matters. I’d love to give you guys a taste of like…the first draft. You know, where mistakes are supposed to happen, and things are a little messy. I just like seeing things progress from just an idea to…a finished product. So I think I’ll try that later today. Anyways thank you so much for following my blog. I know I rambled on there a little bit, but I’m just trying not to be too formal. Again thanks for following me. I really appreciate it, and for those who I am following, I love reading your blogs they are awesome and so inspiring. Thanks!
