Monday’s a Perfect Day for Revisions (and tips!)
Today’s top sticky note to self: “They are call TRANSPORT CHIPS! Why did you call them something else so now ‘find’ doesn’t work, and you have to read every area you mention the stupid things. STYLE GUIDE’
Tip: Just so you know, a Style Guide is something editors use as a cover sheet to the story. Any new word, character (and descriptions used for them), and technology is put in the Style Guide so I don’t confuse them later on (ie: I use the same spelling throughout, and describe it the same way). I also have a Binder–known simply as THE BINDER–that keeps all my notes and research of the world.
Today’s best google search: Who was that Nazi guy who was an environmentalist? (Found someone, but not sure if it’s the one I wanted. I used to debate in high school, and this guy had tons of great writing on environmentalism, so I might need to keep looking . . .)
Today’s shocking find: My manuscript is officially TOO LONG. While I really tried to flesh out this version, I am now trying to cut on sentence level to make sure the writing is tight and concise.
Today’s favorite quote: “I didn’t know I was signing up with a bunch of idiots.”
Today’s distraction was brought to you by: my anniversary. Yep, it’s been 2 years today!
