Right now I am editing. I did my first read through and marked small edits. I was mostly focusing on the plot to figure out what I could do better to tighten it up. Now I am doing the second reading and almost tearing apart every line that I can. I am also marking where I can fix this or that. When I get to it, I plan on posting before and after pictures of what it looks like when I am done with a page.
The black marks are a good thing, if that is believable. It is to create a stronger and more believable story. I am by the seat of my pants writer so I don't expect that everything that I type out on my laptop is shiny. I expect to go back and focus on my words. It is a beautiful thing, but also, it takes time.
I hope you can find patience with the blog for just a little bit longer. It is summer out there and I hope the nice weather will help distract you with its breezes, glimmering water, gardening, chasing butterflies, or whatever summer has you do. And write or read in hammocks. Oh, how I wish I had a hammock.
Going to the library tonight so I can focus on a few more chapters. Trying to decide what playlists to take with me. It should make for a productive evening.
