Script-a-thon, Day Five
Total time: 44 minutes
Goal: I want to finish the red pen edits, then start correcting the laptop version.
Result: I managed to squeeze in some editing at the pool, on the couch, and on the patio. I did finish with my red pen, and I got to page 55 with the laptop version edits. Now I want to start to fill the gaps. When I wrote the first version, I wrote like crazy, then cut it way back and only kept the parts I loved. Now I'm realizing that this version reads easily in my mind, but not everyone may make the same leaps that I do, and I need more backstory. So I think I need to fill it out again, but then cut back like I did the first time.
I also heard a song in church yesterday that would fit perfectly in the story, so I'm trying to figure out how to make that work. I love how I stumble upon little things through the course of my normal life that blend so nicely into this project.
