Wow, the holidays really aren’t productive, are they? At least not for me. I think I added 600 words to the book last week.
I’ve been really struggling with this revision and I’m not sure why. I think part of the problem is that I feel a little overwhelmed. The book fell quite short of the mark in the word count department. It’s YA traditional fantasy and draft 1 capped out at about 56K. So there are a lot of words to add in. But as I go through the book I’m noticing that I was very spare in my descriptions as I wrote that first draft. So there are a lot of places where I can add and beef up that word count.
The other major problem is that I don’t like my title and I am finding it impossible to come up with an acceptable title. Mirror, Mirror is a good working title, I suppose, but the sooner I change it to a title that I adore and that works fabulously with the book the better.
How are your WiPs going?
