Is it really Monday?
Okay, new goals for the week:
1. Re-read what I revised last week.
2. Continue revising. Let's go for chapters two and three.
3. Remember notes--hole in shoe, slipstream.
So, this is where I am in revisions:
I have revised the first chapter, and moved things around a bit. I've added another 'scene', adding depth. I call it my Expand and Contract method of revision. There is a lot that needs to be refined, but a bit that needs to be expanded for character development. It's a lengthy process. Especially since after I expand during revision, I have to go back and revise what I've expanded. Anyone confused?
After this full revision, I will have at least one more short revision left before trying to find an agent.
I'm not doing as well as I'd hoped in carving out time each day to write--or think about writing, but I'm not going to worry about that--as long as I have momentum, I'm fine.
Does anyone have goals for the week?
