Writing Marathon: Day 17

Got stuck in Ch. 7, but I didn’t mind. I was revising Kate’s part today and will continue to do so tomorrow.

Because I get easily sidetracked or get into too detailed description of a scene (especially an interior of a house), I keep reminding myself to remember Steven James‘s advice: “…ask yourself what is truly at the heart of your story.” (“Go Organic,” Writer’s Digest, Apr. 2013) Today it helped–I cut out yet another 300 plus words.

Yep, the manuscript is getting shorter, just like my daily posts. 🙂
