ROW80-3 Wk 2, rpt 2

Way to whip out some last minute editing for the week (and round)!

I reached a lull in my novella (endings always do that to me) so rather than gut it out, I forced myself to switch to editing.

You have to understand that I am very much a one-track minded gal.  When I’m in write mode, I only want to write.  The same is true for editing.  The transitions are my sticking points.

All day yesterday, I worked on nothing but editing my YA novel. //begin braggadocio A good part of my enthusiasm derives from my love of my creation.  I think this is my best-written novel to date.  (And it only took me four and a half prior attempts… haha  #slowlearner) Once I started working on it, it was a joy to bring out and use the finer brushes.  //end braggadocio

When I wasn’t editing or taking a break on the web, I was trying to figure out Scrivener (since my YA MS is the guinea pig).  My poor beta has an ill-compiled manuscript as of last night, but all the words are there even if the chaptering is a bit wonky.

My cumulative statistics are on my ROW80-3 page.

The Linky site lists other participants’ progress reports.  Give them some encouragement too.

  1. brag all you want – the best yet is worth it- I like to pat myself on the back sometimes although very quietly as I was drug up to be a typical Brit – understate – deny – uptight etc!!! – I’m waiting for schivner alpha – kept loosing bits on the beta dont think my machine can cope with betas

    all the best for coming weeks

  2. Glad to hear how happy you are with your current novel. I still consider all my wips job training. 🙂 I’m tempted to try out scrivner. Good luck with your editing.

  3. I had a real hard time forcing myself to slog though the end of my WIP. Luckily I think it came out pretty good. I was just suffering from burn out.

    I’m the same as you, I have a hard time transitioning from one thing to another. It wears me out.
