Write 1/Sub 1 check in: week 19 the one with a revised novel

Week 19! What a week. A software release at work (this is no small thing) and revisions on Speechless. Plus, I managed to write a short story and submit two.

I credit this to my participation in Write 1/Sub 1. Sure, the accountability factor helps. But it’s more than that.

In a way, the slow and steady writing is a lot like exercise. When you need to give it your all and run the race as fast as you can, you’re in shape for it. While I’m looking forward to relaxing and filling the creative well (so to speak), I don’t feel burnt out from this round of revisions.

Writing:

  • Sunset~ 1,200 words.
  • Revisions on Speechless, edits up to the end. As tempting as it was to rush, I kept a steady pace. I ended up adding about 8,000 words to the story (this is a good thing) and I’m pleased. I’m also looking forward to relaxing a bit.

Rejections:

  • Just a Matter of Time ~ not surprised, it was a long shot.

Submissions:

  • Filling the Space
  • The Patron Saint of Lost Things

Acceptances:

  • None
