Working on my book

Posted in Uncategorized by Administrator on the August 20th, 2008

I’ve finally gotten back to working on my children’s chapter book, working title “The Ugly Little Boy” again, thanks to an online editing/revising class I’m taking. The class is great and I’m making real progress in TUGLB since I’m using it for the class homework. I’m trying to work on a chapter a day. The end result with be significantly different than the previous revisions.

Working away

Posted in Uncategorized by Administrator on the August 1st, 2008

I’ve finally started revising my kids chapter book, thanks in part to an online class I’m taking in editing and revising. I’ve cut out the first three chapters and started with the fourth. Lots of stuff about the hero’s life before the “incident” are left on the figurative cutting room floor — and that’s even after the stuff I cut out already from those same three opening chapter.

Oh, well, it’s backstory and it’s good that I know it.
