Because what's a writing blog without a writing update?
As you have seen, my main focus as of right now is If Only We, a young adult contemporary novel. I am in the process of revising and rewriting this one.
If Only We - current word count is 56,728.
I just pulled off 6675 words in ONE WEEK. Heck to the yes.
I didn't WRITE that many words in one week, I revised most of them from scenes I had already written. I had a horribly difficult time on Wednesday night because I had changed a couple scenes near the beginning and it wasn't meshing with the final scene. So I was like, "WHAT THE CRAP, JESSICA?! WHY DID YOU ADD THAT STUFF TO THE SCENES EARLY ON?! YOU'RE RUINING THE END!!!!"
This weekend is going to be it. *crosses fingers* I hope, I hope! At the very least, by next update. Then I'm going to set it aside for a whole week and not look at it. THEN pick it up again and go through it and do a quick overview to fix problem areas and add in anything else that is necessary. AND THEN...... it will be ready for the betas......
Excuse me while I pass out......
Kidding. I'm surprisingly feeling pretty good about all of it. I'm looking forward to it! It's been such a LOOOOONNNNGGGG road. I can't wait to reach the end of it. ^_^
