OK, so there’s not really a reason to do a WiP update.  Except to say that I’ve officially entered revisions round 1.

How do you people do it?  I’m at a loss for really where to begin.  Other than with the major cutting that makes me incredibly sad to do.

Oracles Promise has shed some major poundage.

The current revised word count stands at 59,788 words.


There’s going to be some serious re-writing, new scene adding, and plotting going on.  Right now I’m on a read-through of the manuscript following the chapter-cuts I made over the course of a couple days.  (Non-consecutive days.)

As I go, I cut words, sentences, little things that don’t mesh now that I’ve cut all those words.  I’m leaving comments in the margins where I’ve got internal dialogue.  The comments are just to tell me who is thinking what so I know if I’m head-hopping too much.  (I like to think I’m writing in 3rd omniscient.)

I figure after the read-through I’ll correct what I noticed then and be able to move from there into a second read-through.  My focus now though is on the head-hopping and scene adding.  (Chapter adding, too.)

How’s your WiP going?
