Revision & Stuff

Why does it feel like there's not enough hours in the day to do everything that I'd like to do? :/

Lately, at the end of every single day, I just wish I'd had a little more time. I guess that's how it goes.

Today, I managed to get to page 90/112 of my Sci-Fi revision. The word count has gone past 48k. I wasn't sure if it would or not, because this third draft is not about adding words, it's about making sure that the story makes sense, that all the characters are consistent, and that I've eliminated any glaring plot holes. To be honest, I didn't find any. But I did tweak some fine details that I wanted to clear up.

I find that a lot in my third drafts. Fixing or mentioning one tiny detail makes a huge difference. I actually did that today to a particular scene, which meant I had to make mention later on in the story. That bit is now done, so I'm very happy with it.

Well, I've reached the halfway point of THROUGH VIOLET EYES. This is a very interesting book, with a mystery that I can't wait to see unravel. In this alternate universe, the Violets are people who can channel the dead, and they've got some fascinating jobs within society. I'm enjoying how the world is slowly unfolding through the story of Dan and Natalie. :)

I got this cool book in the mail today, from the lovely Ericka Scott. Looking forward to checking it out. Though my TBR pile is getting bigger each day. This morning, I got these books in the mail as well. They sound so good, and there are 3 books per volume. I've never read anything by L.J. Smith, so I'm looking forward to it.

Anyway, it's time to sign out. Bye for now!
