In the words of my daughter's favorite television show: Great Googily Moogily (translates to Holy Crap, I think).
I'm putting the book about revision and self-editing aside until after the holidays.
I definitely want to keep writing and editing for the next two weeks, but on page one, James Scott Bell assigns his readers the following task:
Read 6 books. Then re-read them, taking notes on the setting, plot, and character development in each scene. Then re-read the notes.
A valuable task? Probably.
Will I do it? Probably.
Should I stop editing PA or writing The Prodigal Sister while I study this stuff? No!
Where's the fun in that?
No, I'm going to put the book aside, and use my limited time these days to read through PA, and see where that gets me. Maybe before the next draft, and before the rewriting of TPS, I'll do my homework on the craft of writing.
I'm just getting into the writing habit, if I pause now to study, I may scare myself away from it all together!
