Time to Revise

Hello again! How are you this week? We're doing good. Still spending most of our time at home reading, writing, playing games, doing yoga and going for daily walks. While maintaining the social distance so many seem to struggle with. 😒

I wish things were better in the current world situation, but they really aren't. It was bad enough when we were all on lockdown/self-isolation, but now that governments around the world are pushing for things to open, it's even worse.

Too many people are running out pretending everything is okay and that the old normal is back. But it's not. We're still in the middle of a pandemic! And I can't understand why people are trying to pretend we're not.

Either way, hubby & I will continue to keep our distance from everything and everyone. There's no way that's gonna change any time soon. Nope. We're not going to fall into the Complacency Trap so many are willing to embrace too early.

Anyway, my writing goal for this week was to get the second draft of my latest novella WIP done.

Here's how it went:

Monday: 13/53pgs (20,677w)
Tuesday: 32/53pgs (20,491w)
Wednesday: 53/53pgs. (20,718w)
Thursday: 54/54pgs (20,904w)

I'm really happy with how this SF-cyberpunkish story is coming along. I did a lot of cutting, some moving around and took care of the Revision List. Too bad I've already started a new one for the next draft. 😬

I won't be starting the third draft until Monday. So I get a few days off to squeeze in some reading, ie. Stephen King's new book. Yay! Not that working on revision has stopped me from reading. As you can see below, I got quite a bit done. LMAO.

This week I've also been updating my Idea and Writing Files. Not to mention, trying to decide what to work on next. All of this writing is really helping my state of mind during this strange year.

Well, that's about it for this week. There's not much more to report, except that the weather is getting colder and I don't like it. As you probably already know. 😊

Hope you all have a great weekend!
