“Miracles” Type-in Update for April 20, 2009

I’ve switched back from words count to scenes revised as it seems to make a bit more sense in that context. I managed two more scenes yesterday, three this morning, and another just now.I’d keep going, but I’m falling asleep at the computer.

I put in the extra time tonight because Tuesday and Thursday mornings are the tough ones, and tomorrow night my oldest daughter is giving a reading of the short story she had published in her elementary school magazine!

One Pass Revision: Day 6 (Belated)

Manuscript Slog Page Count

This is actually my post for Tuesday. I should have posted it that morning, but I had every intention of getting more done. Since then we’ve had a few power failures and other fun time black holes. The systems are UPS protected now, but it took two days to get everything working again.

We’ve got a really busy weekend coming up, and lot’s to get done before then, so that’s probably it until next Tuesday. I’m pretty frustrated about it because I wanted to be done the read through by next Friday (along with a number of other commitments I’ve made). After that my schedule is going to get really nuts. Finding time for anything is going to be tough.

Bah. I’m going to bed.

One Pass Revision: Day 5

Manuscript Slog Page Count

Reached the end of Chapter 5 (not that the existing chapter breaks are going to mean much of anything). I’m surprised how easy it is to brutally remove entire scenes, ones I loved when I wrote them, and replace them with a single line somewhere else. Some of the POV adjustments are a bit more time consuming.

I hope to get back to this today, but I’ve got a lot of other stuff to get done, so no promises.
