Major Revision/Rewrite of Violets & Violins
Status: 101,000 words out of 100,000
Words added/rewritten this week: 3,000
I'm coming up on the end of the rewrite. I still have a few chapters from the previous version to revise and add to this one, but then I'll be ready to move to editing and cutting.
I received feedback from one of the contests I entered. As usual, I found the comments helpful. Two judges pointed out a weak point in my synopsis, and one shared an idea that will make the story much stronger. Wow! I'm eager to incorporate the suggestion that judge gave, which will overcome the problem. Contests help me in many ways, and I'm grateful for generous judges willing to share their expertise as well as their time.
One week from today, Gwynly and I will move our one and only into her dorm. The Fashion Queen and I have much to do in preparation for her move, so she's my priority this week. All too soon I'll have more time to myself than I'm used to. For now, helping my daughter begin a new chapter of her life takes priority. This milestone only comes once.
