I started the switch from third-person to first-person on Witches yesterday. Have you ever paid attention to how many times you use some version of a pronoun in your writing? No? I hadn’t either. Trust me, the answer is: a LOT. Sometimes, it felt like I was changing every other word. At others, I wouldn’t touch two or three paragraphs at a time. I like how the switch to first person lets me deeper into the characters. I like it a lot. Two chapters down yesterday, three on the agenda for today.
Plus some writing. I wrote about 1,500 words Sunday. That’s not an extreme amount, but it’s a very solid chunk for me currently. I’m pretty happy with that productivity level (Which, BTW, is actually 3-days’ worth of words that I didn’t get in last week. 500 words four times a week is my–admittedly small–writing goal these days. I can remember doing 10,000+ word-days during NaNo years ago. Sigh…)
So, writing and revising, before school starts in a few weeks. What’s on the agenda for you?
