Rough Draft Officially Revised

It’s official!

I have completely finished revising my rough draft! I am going to give myself the rest of the week off, and then start making the corrections on the digital copy starting Monday. I’m hoping to get through it at approximately the same speed, if not a bit faster, and then I’ll print it all out again, edit it again, and then hopefully, after making those corrections on the digital copy, be ready for publishers.

I still have a lot of work ahead of me but I’m going to take a moment and feel that I’ve accomplished a lot in the last few months. The total number of pages I had to edit has since escaped me….I know I was over 600 pages before I started part 3, and there’s somewhere around 228 pages in part 3. So, a safe assumption would definitely be over 800 pages (printed, not as a book). I am convinced that single spaced and printed as a novel, it will probably be about half that length, but I’m not sure.

I hope everyone is staying home and staying safe.


About rachelsparling

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.
