It’s official, I reached my first chapter where I got a little too repetitive and had a bit too much information. I had to take out SO MUCH in the chapter and had to rephrase a number of things. I guess I wasn’t on top of things that day when I wrote it, but that’s okay, it’s what editing is all about. Anyway, it’s substantially shorter now. I’ll have to come up with clever ways of making it longer on another day.
Unfortunately, as we reach the weekend and end of a busy week, I am not feeling too well. Something hasn’t settled with me and I need to take it easy. I’m hoping it to be gone by the time the weekend rolls around or at the very least, ends, so I can get back to my usual week.
I hope everyone has a great weekend!
I'm a writer working on a manuscript for a novel. I love to write and I've been doing it for 17 years. Through several story ideas I have figured out what works and what doesn't, and I've learned a lot about myself and my writing style. I love to read and escape to many different worlds. I've also learned a lot about good writing and bad writing through both reading a lot and acquiring an education in English literature, and becoming an ESL teacher. I enjoy filming and photographing all sorts of things and putting together short documentaries and videos. I love my camera.
