Back again! I love this point of the week, looking fresh at what I want to do while debating watching the next episode of whatever it is DSB has in mind. At the moment it’s Buffy The Vampire Slayer. YUSSSH! ^_^
Actions Last Week
~Complete Deep Edits on 12k words of ‘Second Base’ (which takes me up to the scene with Karen and Pete chatting in the garden).
Sorted. Taking it a chapter a day is really keeping me from going insane. Slow and steady and all that.
~Perform Beta Edits on ‘Malcolm’ using comments from (very, very kind!) beta readers
Done. Now I need to let it rest (for a couple of days) before I do one last read and get it ready for proofing.
~Write the special (compilation version only) special story for the end of the ‘Meeting Each Other’ series
Yes. Wow. Okay. Didn’t expect to get it in, but I did. 500 words short of my goal of 3k, but I couldn’t stretch the story any further without it feeling exactly that. So I stopped. Let’s see what editing does to it when the time comes.
Activities For The Week
- Complete Deep Edits on 12k words of ‘Second Base’ (which takes me up when Karen shows Dan ‘Black Angelus’ on her laptop – I realise these markers are a bit cryptic as far as you’re concerned, but I can’t really help that. Sorry folks!).
- Proof ‘Malcolm’ and format
I spent a bit too much time last week relaxing. Not that I didn’t get lots done – I did – but these stretching goals are within my grasp with the two full days I have in the week.
I’m going to push a little further to get these bits done, this time. I really want ‘Malcolm’ done and dusted by the end of the month, then I can focus on the print compilation.
