Writing and editing

So far this month I’ve done five hours of editing, but I actually only started a week ago so I think I’m doing pretty good. Going back through Remy-sequel and getting rid of all the NaNo tricks, like not using contractions, is tedious but it’s helped me figure out where I am with the story. …. I still have no idea where it’s *going*, but I know where I am right now. I’ve continued the cheating storyline and written about 500 words on that in the last few days.

I’ve been poking at Amanda’s story, too. There are half-written scenes and a two-week period that I need to fill in. I’ve gotten about 1.5k on that so far this month. Amanda’s story is just for me, since my main reader doesn’t want to read it and I completely understand, but I still want to get it done sometime. I had a lot of fun with it last November and I got a lot more out of it then I thought I would.

Haven’t touched Alexz’s story or Courtney’s story…. Courtney’s story is lower priority but I still do want to do *something* with it. Alexz’s story… I keep putting it off because I’ve written all the outlined scenes and now just have to fill in the stuff in-between and I’m kind of stuck on that.

I’m already looking ahead to Camp NaNo in April, wondering what story I’m going to work on there. If I get a brand-new idea I’m not going to say no to it, but I think overall I want to concentrate on my current stories this year instead of starting new ones. I don’t think I have enough of Remy-sequel left to write to do it for Camp, and what I do have left I’ll probably get done before then anyways.
