The Things We Do: 7th draft done

Double-exposure-portrait-450833739_879x1195_coverimageI’ve gotten back into editing 🙂 It’s been months and I had no idea when I’d get over my burn out. I think this story is almost done 🙂 I will be aiming to have it out by the end of the year at the lastest. But I want it out sooner.

I’m no longer doing big edits, just little ones like single words and the occasional sentence change. Maybe it’ll be complete in another few edits.

Draft 6 of The Things We Do

Double-exposure-portrait-450833739_879x1195_coverimageToday has been very productive. I’ve just completed another draft of The Things We Do. I’m doing line editing and pretty much just zoomed through it. I know I need to do like two more drafts at least.

It’s 25,646 words and 42 A4 pages long. I’m classing this as a novella instead of a novelette because I think it’s too long. I think novelettes are more on the cusp of 20,000 and under.

20 Days of blog posts: Day 17

Thursday, 16th November ’17

I managed to edit 31 pages of my novella The Things We Do. I have another 10 pages to go, but I’m just too tired. I had already given this story to some people to read a few months ago. They said that they liked it and wanted to know what happened after the book finished. I’m not sure if I want to write a sequel, I don’t have much of an idea of what the next journey will be.

But as I was going over it again, I saw a lot of mistakes. I mean quite a lot. It makes me wonder what my friends thought of my writing. I know one person only managed the first few chapters because they started it stoned and then forgot about it 😦 Thanks for that.
