Daily Writing Check-in: December 25, 2018

Words/Time: 1 hour, 34 minutes doing some early revision of “Pursuit of Power.”

That time was spent fixing the fifth item in my list of difficult things to revise. In the book, the 2 main characters get involved in a mini civil war in their country, and the uncle of one of the main characters is also involved in the battle. However, when I wrote the first draft, I completely forgot he was there. So I had to find some spots to add him in, and have it feel natural. I’m really happy with how it came out.

I have now completed 2 out of 8 difficult revision items.

I’m pretty happy to have gotten so much work in on Christmas day. I did some before I went to bed, but then had some free time in the afternoon between my immediate family’s Christmas events and my extended family’s gathering.
