Today I'm heading back to class after a well-timed and much-needed week of spring break. I made huge goals here in the blog: I wanted to finish first-pass revisions of my MS.
So, did I?
Answer: I came very close. Turned out that a lot more scenes/chapters needed to be totally rewritten, not just tweaked here and there.
As of yesterday, I've completely rough-revised 18/21 chapters. Now I'm having to write 1-3 chapters of new material in the end and tweak the current ending to line up, and I'll be done.
I'm pleased with that. I even made time to do other fun stuff, like yard work and playing Assassin's Creed and watching Star Trek: The Next Generation.
I did have my interviews for the nurse extern program. I don't want to jinx myself before I get the official offer, but things are looking very good for me this summer! :)
So. We're right back into the deep, with a test on Thursday and another a week from today, so no estimations on when I may finish first revisions. I'm just glad I've done what I did!
I can say, though, that so far I like revision a lot better than drafting. Once the course is laid for me, it's a lot easier for me to work within it.
