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 completed the second round of revisions. Now I'll start editing.
B) Revise M, a draft I wrote during the summer. I was so busy on goals A and C that I didn't work on this.
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 10 out of 26 chapters for my second round of revisions.
Michelle and Elise are celebrating their blogiversaries. Congrats, ladies! They came up with a neat idea of creating 7 comic strip cells and participants of their bloghop write dialog of what the two say to each other. Bonus words to use are twist, cheek, buzz, honour, grey, champagne, tango, and vomit. I gave it my best shot. I hope it's not too corny.
Michelle (in balloon): Hurry, let's celebrate before the champagne gets warm.
Elise (running): I'm in the mood for a late afternoon buzz. Hold up!
|V: Hey there, don't twist so much. It would be my honor to assist you.|
|M: You're turning grey. Don't worry. We have something that will cushion our fall.|
|E: I don't look so glamorous now with water running down my cheek.|
M: It's not too late to celebrate.
|Dragon: Did someone say celebrate? Would any of you ladies like to tango? There's a party at my cave tonight.|
E: Why not, since our superhero is knocked out? Promise not to breathe fire on us.
