Yesterday, I sat at my computer and delved deeply into my protagonist's past and personality in preparation for today's revisions. That's right, I started revising my book today! I want this book ready to submit by September, but I'm going to push to get it into the RMFW annual contest. If I remember correctly, that gives me until July 1, 2013. Not much time, but it's a deadline, and I'm going to push really hard to see if I can reach it.
Obviously, quality is better than speed at this point, but I need to buckle down and get this project done. My aim is to be a full time writer, and that means I need to be able to craft stories on a deadline. I'm enjoying my time as a writer without deadlines, but I don't want to take too much time and get used to dilly-dallying on my way toward manuscript completion.
That's all I have for today. Have a great week, and I'll hopefully see you Wednesday!
