It’s WIP February

4 February, 2013

As advertised in a previous post, I have waited until February to start the latest review of my WIP. And at lunchtime today, I fired up the laptop in the work canteen and turned to Chapter One.

My initial plan had been to read it from what will eventually be cover to cover in one hit, allowing me to follow the plot arcs and without being distracted by editing. And I am proud to say I made it to the end of the first paragraph before i changed my mind. I considered highlighting the bits that needed revising so that I could go back to them, but there were so many that I relented and started hacking away. Hopefully I will be able to stick to just aesthetic editing as I forge through the thirty five chapters and if anything more drastic needs doing, I’ll make separate notes and go back to it.

Thus far, you will be pleased to know, the half chapter I have read seems to be standing up to the Quality Test, but to be honest I’m not expected things to go awry for the first eleven chapters or so anyway. I will keep you all posted as I keep working through it, and report back if I find any crashing howlers.
