Daily Writing Check-in: December 5, 2015

Words/Time: 11 hours revising “Pithea” with my sisters, for the 61st and final meeting of the Tri-County Sisterhood of the Traveling Book. It was our 5th marathon meeting, and we spent all day (minus some other chatter, and breaks for lunch and supper) working out all of the questions, issues, and last-minute changes to my very first novel.

This means that draft 4 is officially finished! My plan now is to read through it one more time at a more even pace, since draft 4 was done in a somewhat disjointed way by 3 people who didn’t always agree, over the course of a year. I’ll read through it, not looking to line edit or rewrite, but just to enjoy it and to watch for disrupted flow or something that just doesn’t sound right.

After that…I might just be able to declare it ready.

  1. That’s amazing! Congrats on another finished draft! It’s one step closer to…well, I’ll wait for you to declare that 😉 Best of luck!
    It must have been a great experience, editing it with your sisters. Having my own sister as my editor and companion in my writing journey, I think it’s beautiful that you are able to share it between the four of you 🙂

    • It’s been an interesting road, working on it with my sisters. In some ways, having weekly meetings on Skype for a year made us feel closer, because before and after (and sometimes during) we’d talk about other things. I only wish the 4th sister had been able to be involved too (I’m sure she does too).
