Sunday, August 5, 2012 Awkward

Odin's Ravens! I haven't had time (truly, have not had any time at all) to work on my revisions in...well, I think possibly FOUR AND A HALF WEEKS and...yeah, it turns out that's a long freaking time.

There goes my Master Plan to read the entire manuscript through and make overarching revisions as I go. Hmmm. I hope I don't have to read through from the beginning. I suppose I could start implementing the previous revisions on the computer (all handwritten at the moment), and that would refresh my memory.

Or I could forge ahead, pretending that I remember everything perfectly well and just act like the 4.5 week gap never happened.

OR I could reread the manuscript up to the point where I left off (....goes to check what page number I'm on)...uh that would be 145 pages. And then once I reread those pages I could maybe get back to actual revising.

I don't know, you guys. I mean, it's really really hot in my apartment and none of the campus buildings are open on the weekends during the summer and I'm currently carless so I'm stuck here and I think the heat is frying my brain.

I was so close...and now I feel so far. I'm not complaining! I mean, life has been exciting lately. And different, which, well, I was really in need of something Different. It's just too bad I can't be in two places at once.

If only I could conjure up some iced coffee to fortify myself in this trying time. An icy Blue Moon will have to do.


  1. So what did you decide to do? Other revising writers want to know! :-)

  2. Ha! I'm happy to oblige. I decided to start typing the handwritten edits into the computer, thereby starting at the beginning. That way I can reread while I do work. It's going well so far!
