Draft 5 of Save One complete

Beautiful-African-Woman-174795229_2560x3835_preview4largeI was able to get Chris to have a look at Save One and give me his thoughts. He said it was good, but the ending was a little off. I know that writers shouldn’t give their work to people like spouses, friends or those they’re sleeping with (three strikes for Chris), but I know he won’t mislead me on his opinion of it.

But when I was going through it after I saw so many mistakes that he hadn’t commented on. He told me that the story read good and it makes me wonder how many mistakes people notice. Becuase when I read something I think I pick up on a lot of things, but that might be because I’ve got my editing glasses on.

You can see what I did to the text. I did a lot of line and individual word editing. I expanded some scenes, I didn’t take too much out of it. It is just under 33,000 words. Maybe this will be done by mid-year? I hope that’s the case.

A cheap writer’s retreat?

I’m returning to Australia in a few days 🙂 It’s been over 2.5 years since I’ve been back and I haven’t seen my parents in person since then. They also don’t have decent internet so that means when I return I will not be distracted by everything. I’m calling it my writing retreat 🙂 Every writer needs one right?

I’ve seen people go to (what I imagine to be fu-king expensive) castles or manors in foreign countries. But all a writer needs is to be somewhere that does not have many distractions 🙂

So for the next two-ish? months I’ll be at my parent’s place writing all the stories!
