First Draft B Complete

  1. *applauds wildly*

    By my predictions, I'm just under halfway through my first rewrite. At the rate I've been going lately, I should have this draft done with in just under three months. Bleh. Then comes rewrite #2…

  2. Three months! Wow, you're getting down to the wire!! (Does anyone know the origins of this phrase?) That's excellent.

    This is my first re-rewrite… I had First Draft A, printed it out, shoved it under my bed. Started from scratch for First Draft B. Now, I'm going to edit First Draft B. So I guess my edit correlates to your rewrite #2? :)

  3. Probably? I'm going to rewrite about half of the book all over again from scratch, but I am going to keep the decent parts of the novel intact. There are also some POV issues, some villain refinement (I'm doing a 'villain month event thingy in June), and… yeah. I've got a lot of work to do.

  7. Oh wow. That does sound like a lot. But if you have the passion for it, then that's what matters most.

    I'm actually very interested in your villain month. I've debated joining myself, though I have a pretty solid understanding of my villain… but I'll definitely watch and see what people come up with!

  9. Fair enough… though I wouldn't have any problem if you mentioned it to any of your other writing buddies, or stayed on for a few days with a henchman/underling. :) I've got three others participating so far, and I'd love to see more.

  11. Excellent idea. I usually post on Tuesdays but didn't, since I was so excited about First Draft B's completion…
