Revise. Revise. Revise. That's what I have been doing. My manuscript is now completely different from the first one, well, except of course for the names of the characters and their backgrounds. Yeah, yeah, tell me about it. But the good thing is - I think it's getting better. I think.
The funny thing about re-reading the first draft is finding out that there are plenty of unanswered questions. A lot of rubbish. Chapter one that's totally going to be put in the rubbish bin. And I just noticed - there's this one character that has been there, all along, but doesn't talk! Of course she had a few lines here and there...but just a few words. LOL. I think I better make her more interesting and give her more to say!
Hmmm. That's just me updating you on what I have been doing. There's another thing - I'd like to share with you two wonderful blogs that I have just began following. I thought you'd be interested, too!
I've heard of a 17-year old YA writer, Vee, who's got a really cooooool blog. Check it out! It's called Ramblings of a Writer - click here! Thank you Author Mandy Hubbard for sharing this on Facebook!
And a good friend of mine, Writer Lisa Stowe, has got a new blog, The Story River. Another awesome blog to have a look!
Hey, friends, it's almost the weekend, eh? Time to happy dance!!!!!!
