Book 2 - Cutting Down and Laughing Out Loud
I'm back into the swing of things with my writing after being a bit ill last week. I thought the chapters I worked through after my little break were crap but, reading back through them again, they're much better than I thought.
I'm almost half way through the second draft - woo! - but the word count doesn't seem to be dwindling. I have been cutting, honestly, but it seems I'm adding the same amount back in. I'll see how the word count ends up when I've finished and if it ends up mammoth, I'll have to go through it again and do a bit more cutting.
Last night, while reading through a scene I wrote a few months ago, I actually laughed out loud. That has to be a good sign, right? And if not, at least I have the ability to make myself giggle if nobody else.
