Happy Groundhog Day!

Ahem.  Sorry.  Back to regular programming.

It’s time for a status update.


I’ve successfully navigated my way through this revision.  The manuscript is significantly smaller than it was before.  Try just shy of 8700 words smaller.

Yeah.  Let that one soak in a bit.  And that’s after having added stuff in.

My outline helped me a lot with keeping things straight on this revision.  I knew what needed to be done and had a good idea of how.  There was a problem scene that I figured out and now I think some things work a lot better than before.

Tonight I plan on starting my new outline for the book to replace the detailed outline I last worked off of.  (More on that in tomorrow’s outlining post.)

In other news, I have to re-title this story.  I set up a Google alert on the title I currently have and the last two days it’s brought back a reference to a foreign political leader.  Not a great associatioin so I’m going to have to change it.  But I love my title.  Sigh.

How are your WiPs going?
