Forward movement! Progression! What is that?
I just got some feedback from the latest version of Black Matilda and it was favorable! Some weak spots were pointed out that I was mostly aware of and some that I wasn’t. There were some weird formatting issues that I think we’re all caught but I’ll double-check it again. On the horizon is a list of corrections from the editors that are still in the works. And now I am even more excited to get this one completed!
I have a lot of notes for fixes and additions to book three but they are all mixed up with notes for book four. On top of that, I’ve been hitting a wall in Waltzing Matilda though it’s mostly an issue of what the place the characters are in is like (new place, new rules, new characters… oy). Once I get the big ole edit report, I’ll need my notes.
I know what you’re thinking, “Don’t you have a story bible?”
Well, yes I do but this story has grown exponentially with characters, locations, and motivations since its inception. This is why my notes are such a jumble and things keep slipping through the cracks. And now I realize I need to add even more notes and information for this book and the next one.
Do I know what to do, you say?
Clean ‘em up! Get them all together for each book! Bring that story bible closer to where it should be! So that’s what I did! Well, except maybe the full bible part though it is better.
Is it staring at me again?
Anyway, I am doing all the things to make it better! And I can feel the finish line!
