Progress: 1721 words
I managed to get some rewriting done in my epic fantasy novel late last night. Right now I’m focusing on rewriting the story and not worrying so much about grammar. I’ll save that for when I finish the novel.
So far the beginning of the prologue has been greatly expanded and I tried to slow the pace and make one particular scene a little creepier. I haven’t succeeded with the latter, so I’ll spend some more time with that today (after I start my math homework for college).
One thing I should note is how I do my rewrites. I count the number of words in the new draft rather than hours spent rewriting the story. I have two Word documents open and I write a line at a time, usually reworking it completely. It takes a while, but I’ve seen great results between my drafts in the past.
That’s all for this update. I’ll have a new video on YouTube today about my first week of Spring Quarter classes at the university, which you can find on my channel at 11am PDT.
Edit: the video is now live here:
How did your first day go?
