Wow, no William and no Meredith this week. Let's see if I can get the formatting right for the intro...

Writing on a novel
This week I wrote a new scene, cut two others, and revised a fourth. I also got my word count below 120k for the first time since I finished writing the first draft
It's a big goal, but next week I want to revise the next 7 scenes, which will take me to the end of part 3.
Cats and dogs, living together, mass hysteria!
Thanks for stepping up Emily. Have I told you lately I totally dug your story? I'm glad to hear your still chugging away on it. I really hope to see it in print someday.
As for me, I'm adding words. Still fleshing out my middle grade. Trying to get it to 30k. I will be happy with it if I can reach that point. What's also fun is as I fill it in, I'm dreaming up plot and characters for the 2nd book.
This was created with the intention of being, not a series, but more like a series of episodes. Similar to the Magic Tree House books.
Hey two people before Meredith, Boy, you were busy or something.
I wasn't... not with writing on my novels. Which is why I'm doing this earlier than usual.
Nothing on any of my three novels.
Which means that: NA (In New Mage) is still working through her emotional crisis. Any second she is going to realize part of the reason and go after the bad guy but I hope to try to dig a little more into her emotional state first. I'm finding that not as easy as I thought it would be. I think I'm still too superficial.
And it's probably just me but of the three I think this is the better story and hopefully better writing. Not counting the first three chapters, I'm going to have to redo... well, not so much the first one, I already redid most of that one.
Bright Lights is still being critted and I am going to have to reconfigure a new chapter six to send out next week. It's written I just have to decide on what makes up ch 6.
"Storm Born" is being critted too. I sent chapter one to three people and I think I have only two back but I don't have a deadline except for an inner clock. And I have to redo chapter two to send it out.
I finished rewriting my first chapter and sent it off for comments. I'm feeling pretty proud of myself for finishing the rewrite finally, because this particular revision was HARD.
