I gave myself a deadline of the end of this week to complete my edits on Artisan and get to the end of Colours Part One – and I succeeded with both! I also managed a fair few other writing targets, not least of which was clearing my submissions list. Fly, my pretties, fly!
I started going through Hannah’s edits of selected Artisan scenes.
I went through another couple of the Artisan scenes Hannah had edited.
I finished working through Hannah’s Artisan edits and slotted all the amended scenes back into the main manuscript. Then I wrote a few more scenes of Colours, getting to the end of Part One.
I headed out early to Picturehouse Central and started with a review of the film I watched the night before.
Then I edited Chapter Twenty-Eight of Artisan.
I decided to complete one more GYWO Yahtzee entry before the deadline and thought trying some poetry might be fun. So I wrote five terrible poems to fulfil the Full House scoring requirements.
That finished off my current notebook so I typed up the notes I wanted to save and said a fond farewell to it. Always exciting to start a new notebook, though!
I submitted a story for an anthology whose deadline was today.
I also wrote a couple of brief reviews.
Then I finished off editing the last three chapters of Artisan and sent it off to Dave and my parents for a sense-check. So much has changed and been taken out, I was worried it wouldn’t be coherent for someone unfamiliar with the story and I didn’t think I would be able to spot potential problem areas myself.
I did some editing and completed some submissions.
My dad called to tell me he’d read the first two chapters of Artisan and thought there was a marked improvement from the last iteration, which was encouraging. He gave me some edits, which I did on the spot.
Then I did some more editing of Artisan from comments from my mum, and also completed some more submissions.
