This round of A Round of Words in 80 Days runs from January 7th to March 28th. Here are my goals for this round, all involving YA manuscripts. Abbreviations are used for the titles and updates are in red.
A) Revise and edit EK, a manuscript my beta readers gave me feedback on right before the round. Since last Wednesday I revised 6 chapters.
B) Revise M, a draft I wrote during the summer. Since last Wednesday I revised 3 chapters.
C) Revise and edit VD. I went through one phase of revisions during the last round. For this round I'd like to polish the manuscript before sending it to beta readers. Since last Wednesday I revised 3 chapters.
Next, in the comments section of previous posts people have asked me how I manage to juggle several WIPs. This is a screenshot of the sidebar of my PC. I use the “notes” gadgets and update them while I work. R1 stands for first round of revisions, I have the abbreviations of my WIPs, and the fractions are what chapters out of the total number of chapters I’m done with. This weekend I was productive by working on 3 chapters at a time of my WIPs, with four writing sessions since with one WIP I stopped at 6. If I’m writing at a more leisurely pace I’m less aware of how many chapters I’ve worked on, but this weekend I wrote for a lengthy amount of time. I switched WIPs every 3 chapters so I wouldn’t get stuck or tired. It worked for me.
