Yeah, you’re getting two in one day because I’m bored out of my mind while people are walking in and out my house, supposedly installing new heating. All I hear is saws and lawn mowers and my phone, but who am I to say nothing’s getting done? Not that it really matters that I’m posting twice today, ’cause no one reads this blog anyway.
I bought a book yesterday called Writing a Romance Novel for Dummies. I thought it might answer some of my “Is the love scene okay?” and “Fuck! Pacing! Fuck!” questions I have. I haven’t gotten that far yet (saws and lawn mowers are distracting! Plus, I’m sneezing like nobody’s business.) It is helping on the level of “wow–this is going to be a hell of a revision process.” I’m writing myself a revision letter of the thousand things that need to be better in the second draft
To be funny, I decided to double-space my doc (it’s 1.5 spaced as I’m writing) and it grew to 315 pages. Talk about yikes! I got a little scared and returned to 1.5.
