Revisions: Day 9

May 5, 2011 at 12:34 pm (Anatomy of a revision)

I begin work on Chapter 2, then go play with the cutest baby on the planet for a while. Oh, the hardship. I’m rewarded with smiles, frozen custard, and (less welcome) liberal amounts of unfortunate fluids down my shirt.

However, it does mean that I get a chance to hole up in a cafe for a little while to work on Chapter 2. I know I’m not fooling anyone when I take my laptop to a coffee shop, but working outside my usual space does sometimes help to reconfigure my thoughts. That’s if I can block out “Stayin’ Alive” and other disco hits on the radio. WHAT

Despite the music, I get about 2000 words written, then paste in a conversation from an earlier draft that just needs some tweaking to fit. It’s not as much as I’d hoped to get done, but it’s enough for such a full day.
