#36 Daily Writing Journal - A few mistakes but generally revisions looking good for my urban lit African American romance - Leyton and Angelica
EDITING Mistakes! Wrong way! Not following instructions!
Anyway, I assessed the risk of correcting myself continuing or starting again. I'm not starting again because it will be BORING. And boring sucks! It's demotivating. So I've decided to cut my losses, forget about I've done wrong - leave it wrong but do right....Complicated? I'm a fairly complicated person.
Given I have about twenty more lessons to look forward, I don't think making mistakes in the first lesson is such a big deal.
Let's talk about positive things!
Edit so far: my urban lit African American romance - Leyton and Angelica
According to Holly's website lesson one is suppose to
So that's the stage I am - finding out parts that sucked, and finding part that are amazing. I might have missed the whole point about the target. The material is fully instructional and there is lots to read but I'm just doing what I can. I was never the perfect student so I doubt I'll be one now. I just need to get through it.IN LESSON ONE: You’ll learn how to create your target.During this process, you’ll start finding places where you went in the wrong direction—that’s easy. You’ll also start finding the places where you were amazing—and identifying your own moments of brilliance is much more difficult.When you work your way through this first lesson, the most important thing you are learning is how to recognize and save every bit of wonderful you put into your book. https://hollyswritingclasses.com/shop/how-to-revise-your-novel
So far I've gone through about 7000 words these were my edits I did over the last month until I got frustrated (see other blog posts) - however I'm not doing any more rewrites until the course requires it. So this means that this lesson should be fairly on target because I only have another 30,000 words to go through.
I'm done with my scheduled editing hour, and though I'm tempted to do more, I don't want to get too fatigued otherwise I'd get bored. Also doing a lesson plan allows me to commit to a routine. I might increase the time but for today. Nah.
