11/1: Started out the month doing absolutely nothing for my novel. But I attended Madhur Jaffrey's lecture in Pittsburgh, and it was pretty good.
11/2: Not only did I vote, I actually edited two chapters. These were mostly minor edits, because I've edited those chapters a zillion times over the years, but hey! Two chapters in a day! There is one short dream sequence that isn't working, but I put a sticky note on the page so I can come back to it when I have a clearer idea of how I want to change it.
The draft I printed is unformatted, single spaced, 66k words, and 116 pages. Today, I edited 19 pages (just on the printed copy, I haven't incorporated the changes yet). I probably won't edit that many pages per day, because I'm relatively content with the beginning of the book, and the later chapters haven't been edited a bunch of times yet. I think Chapter 3 will be a breeze to edit, because I've edited most of the scenes a few times, so maybe I'll get through 3 and 4 tomorrow. The thing is, I only divided about a quarter of the novel into chapters so far, so I may have to do some more dividing tomorrow. I'm also hoping to bump up the word count by about 9k words, but I have a couple scenes I want to add, so that shouldn't be a problem.
The thing that might be a problem? My laptop's backspace key is being moody and will only delete if I press it a certain way. I'm wondering if a good air blast will fix it, because I'm sure my keyboard is brimming with cat hair.
