I've been having so many electronic failures, coupled with the fact I'm never sure when my boss will let me use her laptop. I decided to create a blog where I could keep the rough draft of my wip in draft form, and work on them while at 'the office' (I work in a bookstore). This way, I don't have to carry a flash drive; I don't have to worry about file damage; and all I have to do is remember to copy/paste and SAVE SAVE SAVE on my flash, my documents, and drop box:)
I'm currently on day #2 of revision hell. I really wish I'd known about the new rules of writing...no head hopping; Show vs Tell; no dialogue tags; no 'ing' words (or as few as possible); no adverbs; and POV (which goes with the head-hopping). Seriously; on page #3 already, my main character enters a room, and her roommates continue to talk for three lines! If this is in her POV, how does she know what they are saying when she leaves?
Bring back Omniscient POV!!!
I mentioned this earlier, on my primary blog: I was reading some old Danielle Steele books, and guess who I've patterned my writing style after?
Anyway, I'm headed to bed. Hopefully I'll finish Ch 1 tomorrow.
