May's Revision Continues...

Hey! What's new? How's everything going?

Here in Sydney, winter's decided to start early and most days, I'm finding it hard to stay warm. I'm also not happy about the winter season being here already. This happens to be the only season I don't like or enjoy. So, yeah. I'm trying not to let it get to me. And that's kinda easy to do when you throw yourself into revision.

Yep. That's right! This week I got stuck into Destiny's third draft and finished it yesterday. Yay.

Here's how it went: 
  • Monday: 58/170pgs (68,721w) 
  • Tuesday: 116/172pgs (69,168w)
  • Wednesday: 159/175pgs (70,306w)
  • Thursday: 177w / 70,749w

As I mentioned last week, my goal for May is to revise and finalise my NaNoWriMo2020 novel and I'm sooooo close now. All I have left is to proofread the whole thing on my Paperwhite, which I want to tackle next week. 

I really enjoy this part of the revision because reading the novel on my Kindle makes any last-minute glaring problems/issues stand out. It also means that I can lose myself in the story and make sure everything makes sense. 😁

Also, how cool is it that the total word count has passed 70k? I'm very excited. Not so much because of the actual numbers, but because the additions I've made really strengthen the novel, as well as the characters. I just love it when everything comes together.

I also read two different books this week. One was a paperback, which I read during the day. The other was a Kindle, and I read this one at night. Both started out fantastic, but I ended up DNFing the one on my Paperwhite. 😵

If you're interested, these are the books:

So it ended up being a pretty busy week. We also squeezed in yoga workouts and a lot of walking. Like I said, busy-busy.

Anyway, that's it for now. I'm going to enjoy the weekend with hubby.

Have a great one!
