Words/Time: 2761 words revising “Pithea” with two of my sisters over Skype. Also known as the 60th meeting of the Tri-County Sisterhood of the Traveling Book. We got through just over 9 pages of double-spaced text, which was all of what I had prepared. It was also more than we’ve been doing lately, so I’m really happy. There are only 16 pages of the story left to go through for this draft, which is really exciting and also scary! As long as I make some time to revise ahead of the editing group while NaNo is going on, we should be done in two weeks, three at the longest. After that, I’ll wait until I’ve had a chance to recover from NaNo, and dive into what I hope will be the last full revision. I know it will be quicker, at least. I think that’s also when I’ll be looking for another person or two to read through and give me more of an overall impression of the story (rather than detailed notes).
Now, with 4 more days until NaNoWriMo starts, I will be hitting my prep work hardcore the next few days. I haven’t even started my outline. Fortunately, I’ve done some timeline work that will make the outline a little easier to create.
