26 becomes 37

Today was a snow day–we have about a foot of snow outside here in Queens and even the kids had the day off. (Note, for those of you not in NYC: today was only the 3rd snow day in 8 years. I had two snow days growing up.)

So what does one do when snowbound?

Read, of course! Or in my case, re-number chapters. I went through each notation on my hard copy today (notes like: “Add scene here” or “Good break for a Jade scene”) and parsed out the chapters once again. What was once 26 chapters is now going to be 37. Hopefully, those chapters are more focused and will improve flow and how the plot and backstory are weaved through.

Tomorrow begins the deleting of the parts I’ve crossed out on the hard copy, so stay tuned.
