Happy [Insert National Holiday]!

   Posted by: Faith   in Rye Thoughts

firework I hope everyone had an enjoyable Canada Day/4th of July/other kind of weekend fun if you don’t live in North America.

I’m still here, plugging away at the rewrites, naturally not as far along as I’d like but further than I’ve managed to get in years.

I’ve rewritten about 25% of the novel… which means I have 75% to go. Hmm… it sounds a lot more impressive if I just focus on that first number. Heh.

I’m coming close to the areas of the book where I’d skipped writing scenes the first time around, and I’ll have to find my notes to figure out what I intended to put there. Does anyone else do this? Skip scenes, write notes in random places, then get intimidated by filling them in during the rewrite? o_O

Anywho, if you’re here reading this, leave me a quick note to tell me what you’re working on!!! I feel a little disconnected being on this bloggy break, but I promise to give you a visit in return.

Hope you’re enjoying the sunshine! Grab a book, head outside, get some of that good ol’ Vitamin D in your system. :D

Good luck with your rewriting! And yes, there have been times when I skipped writing things with a big “INSERT _____ HERE” so I could come back to it later on. And I have so many notebooks with random scenes and snippets from so many things in it. Totally disorganized–if I want to find something, I have to find whatever notebook I was using at the time. I come across some interesting things that way. ;)

I was supposed to be working on writing my next book this month, but life is CRAZY and my muse is being fickle. I am working like mad to try to prepare to publish one of my books either at the end of this month or in August.

Have fun and try not to feel too intimidated! You’ll do great! :D

I’m too afraid to skip scenes, so I’ve never done this before. Good luck finishing that 75%. Just focus on how much you have gotten done, you’ve come a long way so far. :)

I’m not writing like you are. But I did learn with my blog that I can schedule posts. Which is great! I did a camping series and I didn’t have to wait to write them. They are done. Just waiting to get out. It is done on Saturday. I like that and think I will do it more often. Because I mentioned before that I want to write but feel like I should keep to 1 a day. So now I can! Hurray for learning new things about blogging!

Oooh > .< That's why I keep everything chronological.

I'm finally busy with my revisions, hoping that I can get them done by 31 July.

Good luck with your rewrite! :-)

LOL I’ve never, ever skipped scenes. I have no clue how you’d fix that! Good luck though. Revisions are tough and like housework, they’ll never go away. :-)
