Progress: 2nd edit of Chapter 10
I’m just about finished the second edit, but there’s something bothering me about this chapter that I hope to remedy in the third. I think it’s the pacing. It’s too…something. I don’t know if it’s too long or just poorly organized, but I think I”ll do an outline of sorts with the third edit, figure out what I want to accomplish in the chapter, and pare it down accordingly. I don’t so much cut darlings as move them to better parts of the garden.
The artist for that picture replied back to me with an affirmative, so I’ll have to add the chapter title and words to it at some point in the near future. With any luck I’ll be able to remedy my issues with the chapter this week, do a read through and have it posted.
Quote: He whirled to the window before the dark sea and tortured himself with the stars. *She could not forgive me. All that I did…*heaven mocked him with what he had lost. *The darkness between is far worse than what pierces its back from beyond the veil.*
Project: Book Review
Title: The Legend of Zelda: Hyrule Historia
Author: Patrick Thorpe and Various Others
I’m in the process of drafting this right now. I doubt it will take very long to do, but I say that about so many things that take hours hehe.
Project: Book Reviews
I still have five more reviews after the above to complete. I just keep finishing books (and I may finish two more before the week is out). Saga: Volumes 3-5, Silent Child, and A Court of Mist and Fury. I’ll just keep plugging away at reviews. I upped the frequency of when I work on them to five times a week.
What are you currently working on? Is it a creative writing project, essay, review, or something else? Have you just started something new or are you wrapping up a long term project?
