Words/Time: 1 hour, 4 minutes minutes doing some early revision of “Pursuit of Power.”
After 5 days of absence from working on this, it felt great to be back to it today. Most of my absence was due to being sick (again), but I have to admit that the 1st missed day was due to working late, and the 2nd missed day was…because I forgot. Still, this break isn’t as long as some in the past have been, and I’m confident I’m back to it (even though I’m still sneezing and headachey…back to it!).
I read through more of the story, making broad changes, to get the story ready to be read by a friend, before heavier revision starts. Today I got through about 41 pages of 434, ending on page 189. Today I redid some important parts and thought processes of the MC and am heading into a section that will likely require some new writing.
I’m suddenly very excited to get this done, even though it’s been a while since my friend said he wanted to read anything I was ready for him to read. So he may be unable to get to it for a while when I finally get it done, but I’m still glad to be making progress on revision anyway.
