I took last month off from writing, which was a much-needed break after wrapping up rewrites on Part 1 of BLOOD OF SALT, TEARS OF PEARL in November. I did write up a monthly post and yearly wrap up, but that’s it. Having a full month off from writing gave me time to catch up on my reading and let my brain rest for a bit, though I still didn’t read as much as I would have liked!

Plans for This Month:

Tomorrow, I plan to dig back in to rewrites for BLOOD OF SALT, TEARS OF PEARL. In November, I finished revising Chapters 1-5. This month, I hope to make decent headway on the next section, Chapters 6-10 (give or take, depending on how scenes fall). I divided the manuscript up into five sections in the hopes that it would make revising easier. The second section currently sits at 37,000 words. I hope to whittle it down to around 25,000 by the time I’m finished with rewrites. If I can manage to rewrite 2-3 scenes per week, I should be mostly finished with this section by the end of the month, but we’ll see. The previous section took me quite a bit longer than expected!
