Revising Leah

Now Comes the Fun Part (Progress Report #11)

I’ve finished the sixth revision cycle. I’ve decided that the seventh cycle will be my last, but it will also be the longest — extending to the end of the year. In this upcoming cycle, I won’t be trying to read the novel straight through, although I probably will do that at least once. Instead, I’m going to skip around a little bit, opening the file to a random passage or a random chapter and just start reading, looking for any sentences that I can adjust or words that I can change. A year ago, when I did this with The Spring, it was one of the most enjoyable phases of the revision process. I’ve reached a stage where I can enjoy the story and the text even as I continue to work on it.

Page count: 229.

Word count: Who cares?
