RiP Wednesday

Yes, it's another RiP Wednesday. Where in the heck is the time going? I mean, it's almost the end of July already!!! Why does time move faster the older we get???

So, I'm through Chapter Eight! Woo-hoo. I have either 20,000 or 30,000 words still to omit. woo-hoo (trust me, this doesn't deserve a big "W". At this point, I'm aiming for 20,000, all in my break the rules kind of theory. I mean, if I'm going to mention breaking rules, shouldn't I just break one so I can say I'm an expert at doing it???

I absolutely love the revisions I have done so far. Don't get me wrong, I've loved Margarita Nights in every single incarnation, rough draft to now. There's just an added difference, perhaps a bit more love on my part, for this revised version. Perhaps it's because the story is just a tiny bit sharper, more concise (not that the previous incarnation was bad, mind you).

So, I'm in love with my manuscript. Hey, it could be worse, I could be in love with my imaginary friend. You should have seen the look on Mom's face when I brought him home for dinner . . . Kidding!

Have a great day.

Congratulations, Scott! Woohoo and woohoo! I always love tightening my stories and cutting as many words as I can. It's not always something I do with every story, but when I do it, I love the results. Keep up the good work!

Scott said...

Angie - thanks, and I did!

Christine - thanks.

LitGirl01 - you are still alive. I hope Miles isn't driving you insane. Only two more days until Friday.

Davin - thanks. The tightening is really making a great difference. Like I said, I was happy with what I had, but I'm definitely loving the changes, even the small ones.

I like linking over because I know your post will make me laugh and today didn't disappoint. :D

Scott said...

Tess - I find nothing humorous about my post. It is a serious, serious post meant to inform and enlighten the masses. Humor? In my blog? Never!!!! ; ) Glad you dropped by!
