What 95K Looks Like
I printed this off the other day.
It’s the full manuscript of Knight, plus the two page revision letter. I’m rereading a bunch of my research and my notes, and plan to start hacking and slashing my way through the manuscript over the weekend. I’m thinking about stopping at the business supply place to pick up another whiteboard. When I’m working on something, I do things like this:
As soon as I think of something I need to fix, or check, or a solution to a problem I’m not yet dealing with but is coming down the pipe, it goes on the whiteboard. This is the board for the story I just finished. I have to erase it now and start up lists and ideas for the squirrel sequel. The other board will be for Glory, which I need to work on again today. So I need another one to keep track of dates and ideas for stories, something that isn’t on the computer where I’ll forget it. My reminders have to be visual, and they have to be there.
I wish I could be a bit more like Zoe, with all these planners and her new Write Moar project. But my type of creativity doesn’t respond well to that, though I might give some of her doodads a try on my next project.
