#ROW80 Check-in 2/8/15 – Deep into revisions

I’ve been working on the Grave Touched revisions, and I’m up to page 60. So far, the changes haven’t been huge, but as I get into the middle and toward the end, more work will be necessary.  I’ve got at least three scenes to condense with other scenes, and it might get a bit hairy. But, must press on!

Everything else is on hold until March 1st. I haven’t done any voice recognition, as I haven’t needed to do much rewriting. But I will be messing with it when I have the time.

The past Wednesday, the members of Turtleduck Press, including me, were on the Word Ninjas videocast, hosted by Full Coverage Writers, a group of writers who have a very entertaining, helpful website along with the videocast.  It was a bit nerve-wracking at first, being that 1) we were all new to it and 2) None of us were ever live, face-to-face on video before since we met many, many moons ago.  But as we got into it, we relaxed some and had a good time. Lots of laughing and goofing off, and Charles, the host-guy, is just plain made of awesome, as was his crew. We’re doing it again this Wednesday!

I’m gonna see if I can put it the video here…


Pages revised thus far: 60
Pages left to revise: 202
Scenes finished: 26
Scenes remaining: 103
What’s happening? MCs have just gotten it on. <grin>
What’s next? The afterg — no, wait. Bad stuff, sniffles.
Feeling? Okay, except I’m fighting a migraine
Eye report: One big ball o’ pain here after several good days.
Back report: Totally okay.
Chocolate consumption since last check-in: A double chocolate cake popper which was divine, a WW sundae thing (2x), WW chocolate-caramel thingies, mint chocolate pudding, WW Mini-Twix bars (2x).  I think that’s it.

Happy Sunday.

  1. You’re doing much better than I did if you figure out voice recognition. I worked on it and still couldn’t get it to recognize what I was saying. I could have used it, too, so I wouldn’t have to type with one hand.

    You’re 20% through your revisions. That’s really great!

  2. Thanks, John! Dragon is a bit tough to get used to, and requires a lot of patience, which is why I haven’t used it in so long. But…it still might be necessary at some point. Thank you for the encouragement. That’s a great way to look at it.
