“Miracles” Line for Scene finished

"Miracles" line for scene I’ve been pretty quiet lately. Life has been busy, and every spare moment I’ve had has been spend working on the line-for-scene cards for the Miracles revision. The line-for-scene technique is covered in Holly Lisle’s Create A Plot Clinic, it’s also covered briefly on Holly’s writing diary. I finished up this morning with 109 cards (16 green, 36 yellow, 31 orange, and 26 red).

I intend to start the read-through/write-in Friday. I still have a few post-its to stick onto the appropriate cards, and a few notes on some background things that need some shaping up. My goal was to have the type-in finished by July. I’m still hoping, but I’m not sure how exactly I would pull that off.

    Dude, you have my sympathies. I’ve faced the blood-red stack, and I have conquered, but you have a battle before you. Kick its ass. :D


  2. Jay says:

    Thanks. I didn’t get to start Friday as planned (entire family came down with a cold and it kept knocking me out), but I’m going to start right now (before everyone wakes up).

  3. Holly says:

    We had that cold, or one like it. Wiped us out for about a month before everyone finally stopped being sick at each other. Really excited to hear how your revision goes.
