Progress Journal for Aramis Gothboi: Book One
Mog’s ongoing account of completing the first draft.
Total word count: 22,715
Friday, 21 May 2020
After half an hour of work I added 34 words as I changed the tense of yet another chapter. I didn’t start editing until 11:30pm, so obviously it’s only been a miniscule effort. I was hoping to get this posted before midnight, but the clock just ticked over and it’s now Saturday, which must mean that I need to wrap this up real quick.
I’ve got one more chapter to redraft in the tense I’ve chosen to stick with, and two more to be written from scratch. Completing these should see me to my goal.
On a sidenote, I reviewed chapter one for my writer’s group and it no longer stands up against some of my more recent efforts. Only a short way to go to 30K, but such a long road ahead of me to make this thing sing.
Gotta sleep. Long day ahead when I wake up.
