So, it is about 1:30 in the afternoon right now and I realized that it is in fact Tuesday, not Monday. We switched up our workout schedule and I apparently based my knowledge of days on when I worked out. Everything is all askew and I am now late for posting my blog. Just one of those weeks, it seems. Also, my lack of a posting from last week was due to me contracting some sort of stomach disease and not leaving the bed for half a week. Not necessarily the best for keeping track of the days either. All in all, however, I am now healed, re-learning days, and am chewing through the task of re-entering all my changes into Dreamstate II.
Most of the stuff I’m fixing up is going quickly enough—about ninety percent of the issues was just awkward wording and missing bits of information. There were only one or two more serious points and I think I’ve got a decent handle on fixing them. I am super looking forward to getting this thing back out to people, it’s gone through about a billion different revisions, even since my last round of readers. I’m sure there will be more later, but for now, I’m fairly pleased with how it’s coming out.
One interesting thing that I’ve sort of… stumbled across, is that a semi-major character (that had been buried a bit) is now coming out to the front of the book a bit more. They had been in most of the scenes, but had slipped a bit into the background. With the stuff I’m shifting around, they really become a bit more of a focal point for a few aspects of the story. An entirely vague and possibly only temporary fact, but I’m still at that point of the work where I’m scraping the bottom of the barrel for interesting things to share. Editing is boring, but as soon as this goes out and I can hit up my other story, fun facts abound!
Oh, also, I will be moving at some point in the nearish future—whenever a decent place pops up. The apt. we’re in is being placed on the market, and it seems easier to scoot if something nice opens up nearby rather than deal with lots of folk checking it out and tromping through. Happens, I suppose, but the path of least resistance that also lets me write uninterrupted is the path I like the most (and in this case is moving).
