I am now technically half-way with editing the first draft – lets just say I have definitely cut 10 percent off the word count. What happens if the word count is too low? My boyfriend said. I don’t know. I really don’t know.
The chapters alternate between two female characters – I have now decided to put one in first person because I want the reader to know her opinions, see the world from her eyes. Also, give her a unique voice in doing so. I don’t want the character to have the same voice as the other character or even sound like me.
I haven’t written any new stories at the moment but I did edit two chapters over the weekend – which counts though don’t it? I also slashed out the beginning of chapter 13 – something that took six pages to explain (!) is now one paragraph. Bish. Bash. Bosh.
