Well we’re one week into Camp NanoWrimo. I have finished revising and typing in the scenes/chapters that were transitioning from the last draft for ACT 1. That leaves three scenes that now need to be written for Act 1 to be complete, which I consider pretty good and I’m hoping to get that done early this coming week.
My momentum for week one was going strong because the most tiresome part was the typing in the printed and revised pages into the document for this draft. There were many times when I didn’t want to type in, when I thought about just copy and pasting the old draft and only fixing the revisions I’d noted on the physical copy. But ultimately the theme of this revision is avoiding laziness. There were definitely parts I reworded/edited as I was typing in that I hadn’t noticed when going over it by hand, which goes to show that every step helps improve the writing.
There’s not much to say about last week in terms of writing since it was pretty much exclusively typing in revisions, and I’m looking forward to this coming week finishing up ACT 1 and getting into the first half of ACT 2.
I did do some reading this week too, though. I finished my reread of “The Hobbit“, as well as reading “Lumberjanes Vol. 8: Stone Cold” and “The Backstagers Vol. 2“. I’m still behind on my reading goal for the year but I’m hoping to catch up by the end of this month.
I do start a new job next week though, so this is my last full week of freedom to do as much writing and reading as I want, and I’m hoping to take advantage of that and make large dents in both goals.
