Where did July go? That was fast!
I didn’t finish all my goals, but I did pretty good. Here are the last two, modified:
2. Read-through of revision changes. This became, “Revise in entirety.” I’m going through, much quicker this time, catching silly errors and continuity problems, addressing a small laundry list of items to change. Still, being away for my birthday weekend kept me from getting as much done as I planned. Realistically, I hope to have this revision done by mid-August now. And then I’ll be able to do the following:
3. Send to 2 betas/CPs.
So it puts a bit of a wrench in my stated August goals, but I decided at the last minute to sign up for a LitReactor class for two weeks, starting last week, and that’s helping me with my revisions so I don’t mind the delay so much!
I signed up for their women’s fiction class a few months back but it was cancelled at the last minute, so I was excited to find this one – about making your prose leaner – as it’ll apply to both my current manuscripts. I’ll report back on how it went at the end! The instructor is lovely and encouraging and the other students all have such varied and fascinating stories to tell. Really enjoying it so far! (though I *am* behind…)
Hope all your goals went smoothly this month! Bring on August 🙂
