So, in the sphere of writing, there has only really been one thing happening recently… Blurt expansion.
This is going OK, though I’m finding I jump back and forward a lot as I find things in later chapters that need more foreshadowing etc. That means I usually don’t find my editing sessions end up focussing on the part of the book I intend them to!
The interesting thing in this edit (remembering I’m technically just finalising ‘draft zero’) is that not only am I expanding the overall length as I add in needed detail, but I’m also cutting out quite a bit of stuff that was flabby etc. So Blurt is feeling trimmer and somewhat smoother than it did before.
