I’m ahead!

Written By: Jess - Dec• 15•16

It’s a miracle! Some how I have flown through 2nd draft edits, and I have ONE CHAPTER LEFT.

HOW DID THIS HAPPEN?

I’d given myself three months to get these revisions done and somehow it looks like I’m going to do it all in two. I’m in shock. Happy shock, but shock none the less. I figure what I’ll do once I’m done is take the next month to really go over consistency issues, notes I didn’t get to, and another read through.

I still need to cut more words and I’m pretty much looking at my MS like:

Annnnnd… delete this sentence.

I’m playing with the idea of cutting a scene, but I’m going to wait and see what my critique partners say. There’s also feedback on past chapters I still need to go through, so I might be able to cut some words while I do that too. It’s interesting. There are some scenes I really love, but when I think in terms of  “I need to cut this or an agent is never ever gonna look at my ms ’cause it’s too long,” that scene is suddenly a loss less dear to me. Bye-bye.

In other news, I completed my GoodReads challenge for the year. Next post I’ll write about what I’m reading.
