Not a lot of progress on Island of Glass to report for the week, since revisions are hard to quantify. What I can say is that I’m in the middle of chapter four now (of ten), and during this rewrite, I’ve added an additional character as a foil for Chiara. That has resulted in about another 2500 words to Island of Glass, which is now coming in at just under 20,000 words.
It might not be a lot of words for the week, but I don’t think it’s smart to count words while revising. I’m just mentioning them for the record. Sometimes, the best revision is measured in words cut. If memory serves, when I was working on the final draft of Shadow of Stone, I cut at least 10,000 words — but that, admittedly, from an initial manuscript of about 190,000 words. And the cuts happened over a revision lasting weeks. Which means my “progress” during the revision stage was about -2000 words a week. I dare someone to top that! *g*
Before I close, just another reminder to check out the Epic Fantasy Ebook Sale Party!
I wish everyone a wonderful week. 🙂
