242k – First Draft Almost done
Well I’m up to 242k and the first draft is almost done. I’m up to the first potential stop point but I want to finish my second potential end point before officially calling it.
This next week is the wife’s only free week in the past couple months so while I’d like to declare that I’ll probably be done in a day or two and then race off directly to the edits. I can’t swear to it. Could be tuna could be peaches (ala Look Who’s Talking the Movie)
Anyway regardless of whether its broken up into two books or just one monster book, its nice to be a couple days away from being done with this thing. The Editing Brain is most definitely different from the creative brain.
With the Creative Brain you have to turn off your little editor check list and just push the product onto the screen, the editing hat on the other hand, while critical to a good enjoyable read, requires a little different mindset.
Not that I can’t help with the edits and make a significant strides toward improvement, its just nice to have help that can take a fresh look and plug those weak links we all have.
I’m starting to ramble. Anyway I just wanted to keep you guys in the loop and I finally found my password to the Admin side again. I transferred laptops after my main and back up both went down and I was stuck with no forward motion for 3 days while they were repaired. Its easy to make comments on existing threads but you have to…
Anyway rambling its an hour or so after midnight over here.
have a blast!
