Attacks by germs is a wonderful opportunity to contemplate life. Amidst internal, mental yells of 'die! monster die!' at the tv (yes I was pretending the monsters were germs), I finally figured out my POA for the next few months of writing.
First of all, no panicking. I am still working on APWP. Only, just a page a day. More if I can manage it. 1 page is manageable.
Why just one page? Well, I need to start revising other works. First up: Termion.
Goals for Termion broken into smaller chunks
#1 Read it all the way through.
I can stop to breathe, carry on with life etc. However. I must not stop to delete words, or add new ones in. If I must, I can write down ideas in a comments box. This is to remind myself what is in the story.
#2 Go through each chapter, noting down characters, action, clothes, place names, etc. Everything which I conveniently forget and then have to insert using CAPITALS.
#3 Decided whether this is going to be a one POV book or not. Hopefully I'll have a better inkling after #1 & #2. I'm leaning towards adding one in - not just for the sake of it. That wouldn't work. But the majority of my wips are several POV, and I'd like to keep it this way for marketing purposes.
#4 Start revisions (with or without 2nd POV).
#5 read through again.
#6 Send to beta readers.
My logic: once I have an agent, I'll pretty much be doing this anyway (writing new wips while editing other ones). I may as well get used to it all now.
