A writer takes earnest measures to secure his solitude and then finds endless ways to squander it
I had planned to begin my rewrite tomorrow but I was too excited and wanted to revise my first scene today. I am happy to say it has been a success and I am part-way through my second scene (out of 60 at this stage). It feels like an overwhelming process and it took me almost 3 hours to revise and rewrite the first scene – that’s a lot of brainpower and concentration I wasn’t aware I had! It’s nice having a very detailed outline at hand so I’m just going to take it scene – by – scene and trust in the process.
Pretty much all my scenes after this are completely new scenes so it will be interesting to see how they come together and how long they will take to get it to the standard I want it to be.
As a little experiment I really want to push myself this week and see if I can clock in 50 hours of revision. I revise regularly during the week but still haven’t been able to put in a ‘full-time’ hours even though I’ve had the time for it. I know revising is a lot of thinking and walking around at times, but now that I’m in the nitty -gritty of things I’m really curious to know how much I can do (without rushing through things).
So this week – it’s about 50 dedicated hours.
I’ll probably be posting more regularly this week with mini -updates of my progress for those of you who are interested.
How is everyone going with their WIP?
Love and light,
