As of 3:16pm on October 25, 2019, I can officially say that I have finished the rewrite of "Believe Everything."
I am so freaking relieved!
Honestly, I don't remember when I started the rewrite. But I'm going to procrastinate for several minutes in an effort to go find out. It's okay, you won't notice.
Okay, so probably January of 2019 I began the rewrite while making sure Avens was set to go. Could have been a little before that, but I digress.
So we're looking at ten consecutive months of going at this manuscript hard. It was hard, but it's worth it.
Now then, the next part of this plan involves making a few timeline tweaks. Going to rearrange a chapter or two to allow for a greater history between characters. After that, I'm going to format up a few versions of the doc and send it to some special readers. They will have all of November to read it and take notes on what I can do to make it better.
Without me bothering them.
With zero questions from me whatsoever.
With minimal communication with me at all.
(Psst. It's only because I'll be busy with my day job and NaNoWriMo–more on that later...)
However, once December 1 hits, all bets are off and they know I will expect a progress report ASAP.
Honestly, I doubt I'll make it, but if I can implement even the most drastic changes prior to December 5, then I will most definitely be submitting this for #PitMad on Twitter. So be sure to check all of that out!
And now, I'm going to take a break and go read more of "The Night Circus" by Erin Morgenstern. (Absolutely mesmerizing book to read; especially in October!)
Thank you all for enjoying this wild ride with me.
