Words/Time: 49 minutes doing some early revision of “Pursuit of Power.”
Most of that time was spent finishing item 3 in my list of difficult things to revise, finishing revising the scene that I moved over from “Pithea.” That got me through 6 out of 8 items on the list. The other 2 I am saving for later.
Next, I am starting on a new list. While I was working on the items from my list of things to fix during this revision, I came up with some more things that needed to be done, and wrote them down for later. Now I’m starting on that list, which currently has 16 items on it. Today, I fixed the 1st and 4th items on the list.
After I’m done with this list, or perhaps before I’m completely done, I’ll read through the entire draft again to find any other glaring issues that need fixed before I’m willing to let anyone at all read it. There are a few items on this list that might better be fixed while reading through the draft, rather than trying to find all of the places the issue exists by skimming or jumping around.
