Draft 6 of Save One done

Beautiful-African-Woman-174795229_2560x3835_preview4largeIt’s been over six months since I last touched this story. I’m so glad that I’m getting back to it because I want to get this done by my birthday in two months time.

The edits I’m doing are mostly line and word edits. No larger things like scene or chapter arrangements. I’m still iffy about the title, but I’m not sure what else to call it.

Currently, it’s 33,000 words and when I first wrote it I felt that I have improved a lot since my previous works. But now I’m seeing some things that I don’t like. Like how I’ve written some scenes. Or that I’ve referenced events sometime after they’ve supposedly occurred in the book. I think it’s going to take the readers by surprise and question why I’ve written it like that. I think I might have to go back and fix those in later drafts.

Draft 8 of The Things We Do

Double-exposure-portrait-450833739_2620x35601_smashwordsI’ve managed to force myself to do another draft of this story. It’s so close to being done, I can almost feel it. The only edits I’m doing are a few word edits, a sprinkle every so often.

I’ve noticed a few mistakes like similar word spellings instead of the correct word or a word is out of order. But it’s nothing major. I have someone go over it and they didn’t notice them.

I’m going to make sure this thing is out by my birthday.
