So I’ve signed up at NaNoEdMo (National Novel Editing Month) to revise BLANCHEFLEUR in March, have to log 50 hours of edit time. BLANCHEFLEUR, formerly titled TAKEN, is my 2008 NaNoWriMo novel. The first draft is a rough 50,000 words. I expect I’m going to spend March crawling through the edit and trying to keep my wits about me. Here’s hoping it goes well.

Forgot my Friday Report on Friday–

  • Completed revision of Chapter 2 of BLANCHEFLEUR, wrote 6 additional pages to finish the “First Night” scene.
  • Prepared January’s short story, BREATH OF THE GRAVE, for submission, but didn’t send it yet, have a few minor edits to do.

Yesterday I read the opening of Chapter 5 of SWEET TABOO at Wee Fictionaires. Not back to working on that yet, but want to keep it in mind.

Despite Friday night’s heavy rainfall, Saturday was beautifully sunny. I can see the wind ruffling through the trees this morning, the sky has that pale, moody look. Have to get some writing work done this morning, then I’m off to see SHUTTER ISLAND with a friend this afternoon. I’ve already figured out the twist from watching the previews, but Leonardo DiCaprio is always a treat to watch.
