It's Revision Time!

That's right! I've decided to revise the slasher novel I wrote in August.

My plan is to complete the revision process by the end of this month. If I can get this done, then almost every short story, novella, novelette and novel I've written during 2020 will be completely off my WIP slate. I say almost because my NaNoWriMo novel will have to wait until next year. 😊

I've got a bad habit of writing first drafts and not following through with the full revision process. But this year, I decided to stop doing that. It's why I plan to revise a bunch of my 'forgotten' first drafts during 2021. But I'll post more about this another time.

For now, here's how my progress went:
  • Monday: 41/135pgs (52,937w)
  • Tuesday: 88/138pgs (54,433w)
  • Wednesday: 55,741w / 141pgs 
I'm really excited about getting this done and how the draft turned out. I cut a bunch of stuff, added 4,137 new words, and will now put it aside for the rest of the week. I like to take a handful of days off between drafts. This way, the story gets a chance to slide in and out of my mind so I can start a new Revision List. Actually, I've already done that. LOL.

Well, aside from throwing myself into revision, we've been keeping up with our yoga workouts and walks. I've also squeezed in a bit of reading, but that's about it.

I'm looking forward to taking another mental break before tackling the third draft next week.

Anyway. Hope you're all having an awesome week!
