So I just wanted to update you guys on how have revisions been for Moonlight.
I’m done with Revisions!!
I’m so happy I was finally able to finish revising my first draft of Moonlight and I was able to do it within the deadline that I had for myself which was to get it done by May 1st
After I was done with that, I’ve decided to jump right in to re-writing Moonlight and getting my second draft ready
Moonlight Revisions: Finished all 35 chapters
Currently re-writing Chapter: 5
Like I said in my last update post, I’m scrapping the Moonlight’s Prologue and starting directly with chapter 1 (it was so hard pressing the delete button XD)
Chapter 2 gave me a pretty hard time. I had to re-write it all over again because I realized that I’ve written in completely in the POV of a minor character and because that character will not have a POV again in the novel. I had to write this chapter in a completely new POV of one of the main characters.
Chapter 2 in my first draft was also extremely long so I decided to split it into two different chapters because I realized that I:
- Jumped from one scene to another
- Introduced too many character in one chapter
Which is a big mistake when writing a book
Chapter 4 (previously chapter 3) pretty much stayed in the same outline as it was originally in, just tweaked it a bit (or a lot actually XD)
Until next time
