Revising Leah

Joining Leah For Thanksgiving Week

As I suggested in my last post, I’ve been spending these final days of November re-reading chapters 15-24 because those chapters are set during the last week of November. It’s a fun way to read the story (even though it does slow my reading down quite a bit).

On Sunday, I even managed to time my reading so that it corresponded (partly) with the time in the story. Chapter 16 begins at exactly one o’clock in the afternoon, and that was exactly when I started reading the chapter. That was pretty cool.

I can’t do that with every chapter, of course, but I am reading the chapters on the appropriate days. Today is Tuesday, so I’m reading chapters 18 and 19 which are set on Tuesday of Thanksgiving week.

I’m still not seeing any big problems with the story — nothing I need to revise. During my last read-through of these last 8 or 9 chapters, I did notice some possible instances of needless repetition, but I’ve been watching for that during this read-through and I haven’t seen a problem.

  1. Glad the read through is going so well. It does sound like a fun thing to be able to do, reading the chapters on the days they fall on in the novel.

  2. Maybe it’s a good thing that you’re slowing down your reading of the novel this time around. It sounds like you’re having more fun with it this time as you absorb the story while watching for those pesky little errors. It also gives you something to look forward to.
