The first 8,300 words of Queen Witch are revised and edited. I could almost hear these pages squeak, they were so clean. I’d been worried about the start of the novel — beginnings always confound me — but I think I actually did a great job here.
That’s the exciting part… Now for the hard stuff! I’ve reached the point where I need to make major revisions, including writing several new scenes, due to a timeline change from the first draft. So the next couple of weeks I’d better hear a lot of clickety-clack on my keyboard. My goal is 3,000 new words each week.
Memorial Day is next weekend, which is a complete stunner for me. From that point on, I have stuff on my calendar every weekend through my pal’s wedding July 7th. That includes another show for hubby — at a big festival in Bend. Okay, I was feeling proud and clicked though to the Bite of Bend website. They’re linking to this YouTube video of a show hubby’s band played last summer, at the Oregon Brewfest. If you like Led Zeppelin, check out this snippet of their tribute. Hubby is the furthest right; tall drink of water in the blue shirt.
Fitting in writing is going to be a challenge, as usual. But I’m up for it! Let’s kick some springtime butt, ROWers!
