The course started December 15? Maybe 16th. And it's a bugger.
I figured I'd do the work, figure out what was holding up the novel and get it fixed. 22 weeks of revision course and I'm already four weeks behind.
Week one sucked. It sucked for four weeks while I found all the questionable choices I'd made and tried to figure out where I'd gone wrong, which looked like ripping out three entire chapters along with the original first one and maybe just starting all over. Tears, desolation, depression.
Explaining things to the spouse brought some clarity. Finally getting to week 2 brought some more. I brought back the original first chapter, noted that there were ways to link the other three chapters to the over all problem and am continuing through week two slowly.
I am so hoping week three picks up on speed, but I suspect not.
So, while I'm taking this course and when I'm writing, I will be blogging here about the process, in general ' cause I'm not supposed to share copyrighted material. I may do some sharing as I work because it's always good to get feedback.
I've stuck a "contact/comment" block in the side bar to the right. If you're interested in keeping up with what's going on, including any goodies I may be posting, or sending out to the email list I'm building, please sign in.
NOTE: I will not share any information I receive from you. I'm looking at writing as a way to make money, eventually. I am not interested in enriching advertisers, scam artists and other people who annoy you by sending you emails you do not want.
Back to revision work.
