Wednesday Check-in

Writing the Breakout Novel Workbook: 59 tasks completed out of 591 possible,  4 since 6/16.

Miles walked: 0 since 6/16.

I have finally finished Lesson 7: Personal Stakes from the workbook on pages 48 and 49. I wrote in longhand and then typed the revisions into Scrivener. This exercise did more to change my story than any so far. I wrote six completely new scenes, altered the point of view on a number of others, and revised fifty-six pages of text. My manuscript is formatted in single-spaced pages, so roughly one-quarter of the book has changed. I started working on Lesson 7 on April 28. I finished yesterday, June 20. I coped with plenty of interruptions, but in the end, I put my head down and ploughed through because I could see the benefits on every page.

I walked everyday on vacation, but at home, it’s too hot and the girls are with me all the time, so I’m not getting any mileage.
