So many commas deleted, plus more improvements made to the novel. Lots of good sessions this week. It feels like I’m making progress.
First full writing day for a while. It took me some time to get settled and focused, then I tackled another Artisan chapter before Ann joined me.
I wrote up reviews of the new games I played at Handycon over the weekend, then went back to do another chapter of Artisan.
To get my more actively creative juices flowing, I worked on a prose poem for an upcoming submission deadline and edited another one down to the required length.
Then it was back to Artisan for another chapter.
I read a bit of Bird by Bird, then took a stab at a blog post, using the notes I made on the article Dave sent me.
To finish up my uber writing day, I went to No Grammar Required and had lots of fun freewriting with Claire and Rachel.
I trekked to Vauxhall to meet Hannah after work and managed another two Artisan chapters before she arrived. I spotted some continuity errors as well as identifying extraneous commas, which was very useful.
Then I went through Dave’s comments on the proposed blog post and made some edits.
After a long week at work, I took myself off to a cafe to work more on Artisan, completing my scheduled two chapters before finally heading home.
I posted my response to the article.
I also helped Bear with his account of Handycon last weekend.
Then I submitted some stories to various places for possible publication.
First Urban Writing Retreat day for a while, and lots to do.
I didn’t do any Artisan editing yesterday so I started there and decided to do blocks of two chapters.
After the first block, I caught up on my reviews.
I did two more Artisan chapters, then noodled around the internet for a bit to find a new place to submit flash fiction.
Then I went back to Celestial Intern and finally got around to looking at the Scribophile feedback. I made the relevant changes to get it ready for submission.
Back to Artisan for another two chapters, then I took a break and read Bird by Bird for a bit.
Then I did one last Artisan chapter, to bring me up to date with my planned schedule to get it all finished by the end of August.
