Getting Moving

This month has probably been my least productive month of the year, definitely since March. I’m not sure if my lack of motivation is due to non-writing elements of my life or because it’s a case theres a lot of work I need to do on Earth, After Liberation (I’m fairly sure I’m going to have to all but re-write the second two thirds of the story) but whatever the reason I haven’t done much recently. Today I’ve tried to get back into it again a little. I’ve finished reading the first section of the book and I’ve started making the edits I’ve noted down. I’ve decided to break the story into three parts for the editing process. This is because I think the story will break down into these sections better and I’ll be able to focus on them and make them stronger.

I’m hoping to have this draft done before NaNoWriMo starts because I’ll be working on Earth, After Liberation’s sequel, and I’d like at least two weeks to work on planning that before NaNo starts.


I did feel pretty good over last weekend and the start of this week as I worked with Cat and Lynx Raven for interview (scroll down my homepage to find it). I really enjoyed thinking up the questions and then putting it all together. Cat and Lynx are amazing people and I’m really pleased with how well it all went.


Now I’m off to get two more chapters worth of changes made. I’ve red-penned up to chapter seventeen and I’ve made the changes on the first three chapters so far, so if I can get the the first five done then I’ll be happy 🙂

  1. As a now-veteran of the “my gosh, all of this will need to be rewritten” reaction, I suggest a schedule of some sort to get you through the next 2-3 weeks. I normally use ones with equal benchmarks (words, chapters, pages) each day, spaced out such that at the end of whatever time period I’m done. Then I attempt to exceed that benchmark each day if possible, finishing early.
