Mad experiments and burnt eyebrows in the arena of literature
Seems like a reasonable estimation.moodMoody Writing@mooderino
And that's the conservative estimate!
Is that why your beard has grown so long?And I really get this. I mean REALLY.I started Warrior-Monks in March of 2009. Over two years later and I'm really only getting close to having a decent first draft. You'll see what I mean.
Ha! I'm not the only one who revises at the pace of a forming glacier. Maybe that means we're working on something big, like the Great Lakes.
Ha ha. Remember, if you revise a little every day, day after day after day, eventually you will finish it (or it will finish itself when your mind melts at the sight of it). And this, too, what I tell myself when I clean the house: "The trash can is your best friend." You don't have to revise the stuff you cut...
hahaha. so true... SIGH. :D
Is he wearing a bow tie? Because that is HOT.
Oh please not that long! I can't keep this up for 4 million years... I just can't...
I'm in the middle of revisions too on a MS that's been 4 years in the writing. I've been revising since Jan of this year, when I decided to rearrange the first 6 chapters. Of course, that creates a bit of a domino effect.Since you're editing in your dayjob now,Bryan (correct me if I'm wrong on that) is it any easier to revise your own work? We'll need a robot body to stay functioning for that 4 million years.
@ DGWell, I certainly think my eye, in terms of the technical stuff, will be really sharp. Most of the revisions now, though, are more content/story-oriented, dealing with the use of exposition, how characters come across, streamlining certain scenes, reworking certain elements. Right now, I know what to do, I just have to do it.
Oh yeah. I take forever in revision, too. This definitely made me laugh!
Get on it.
LOL! Been there.Edge of Your Seat Romance
Actually I'm doing 30 pages a week and halfway done by next Tuesday with editor/instructor/published author notes. So, I'll only be interrupted by my trip to New York City for Thrillerfest during the second week of July. But, that will be fun!
We're still waiting for the latest drafts from Dickens.
DEFINITELY feels that way today in the 102 degree heat! Funny!
Ummm...almost 10 years? Good luck, each and every one of us!
