Author’s Log 2607.19

The last month has been a busy one in matters unrelated to my fiction writing, so there’s been a break from making solid progress.

In completing the latest Non-fiction draft, i set myself a reward for a trip away to reconnect with my novel and get new energy into the editing process.

I never had too much trouble sitting down to write, but the discipline of editing every day hasn’t stuck fully with me yet.

The reward week away on my own to rebuild momentum has been a big success, with my latest editing of A Fool’s Errand at over half the book.

It has been super helpful to get up every day and block out half the day with no other task but editing. That of course included new writing as well.

Key Work of Late:

  • Editing more than 50% of the book
  • Writing new chapters
  • Checking in on key elements of my storyworld
  • Finding some inconsistencies and correcting them
  • Adding more into the world wiki I am using to manage all the elements
