I’ve finally made it to the halfway point in my revision on Shadow of the Necropolis! It’s still very slow going, but I really need to finish it, since classes start up again on Wednesday. Not to mention, the PitchWars sub window opens on the 27th, in 2 weeks!
- Chapters revised – 15 of 32
- Total word count – 35,736
- Chapters/day to finish on time – 2
- Final word count estimate – 71,000
My word count has gone down quite a bit from the previous draft (84,000) for some reason! I could be off, and it’ll end up being a bit longer, but we’ll see.
Over the next two weeks, I need to finish this revision (the quicker, the better so I don’t have to worry about it), revise my query letter again, and revise my synopsis.
I can do this!!
