What a pretty picture!

Don't you think?

Well, what can I say... but, it's Friday! Yay. The weekend is already here, really. I mean, it is Friday night now. I didn't have enough time to blog during the day because I was busy with the Sci-Fi rewrite.

I wanted to get it finished by today, but... um, I didn't exactly finish. I did, but I didn't. What does that mean? Well, instead of rewriting/revising a chapter and then backtracking to make sure that everything fit together, I decided to just keep moving forward until I got to the end. Which I did.

The stats are: Total pages ended up being 171. Word count is 58,426. That's pretty cool. Except, I don't know where the extra 8k came from. lol. I was hoping to reach 50k and instead am pretty close to 60k. But hey, I'm not complaining. In fact, I think 60k should be the new word count goal. ;)

I have to admit that as much as I wanted to be done with it so that I could move on to something new next week, I don't mind. My daughter is now on school holidays for two weeks, so I think that finishing up this rewrite, dealing with a new release, catching up on my reading, and taking care of things that need to be brainstormed and/or cleared off my to-do list will be perfect things to tackle.

So, backtracking will be the first thing on the list. I have to go back to page 113 and read on from there. I expect the word count to go up a little again, because I pretty much rewrote the story from there. I can't believe how much the story has changed and evolved. I like it a LOT better now.

Last night, I picked up ASH and started reading it. Wow, it hooked me in right away. I love the writer's voice, and the story's charming so far. Can't wait to read more of it. I'll have to put some time aside for it over the weekend.

Have a great one!
