Write Every Day: Day #15

A good night's sleep this time, and I've been more functional and in a better mood today. Still a bit slow at getting myself active, but going better. Which is fortunate, what with deadlines looming!

Today's writing

Took me until evening, but I finally got started on editing my Yuletide story! Even if I got that thing where I spontaneously vacuum-cleaned my entire apartment rather than work on the editing. I actually don't get that so often. Anyway. At the moment I'm on the third page out of 15. Taking useless things out, putting better ones in, making comments where bigger changes are needed and I still need to work them out. I've got a bribing going on: if I do at least 5 pages tonight, I get to watch another episode of Brian Cox's Wonders of the Solar System. It's so pretty and spacey! He's so excited by everything! So I'll try to continue a while longer, but since my mind temporarily stalled, figured I'd get the post up now.

Thankfully, I'm finding the writing mostly decent so far, but storywise I need to change some things. Add a scene with dialogue instead of long expository thoughts, things like that. The word count's gone down a couple of hundred words so far, which is good. I know there's superfluous stuff here that just detracts from quality, there always is in my first drafts. I do add things in editing, too, but usually the story improves if the word count goes down at least a bit.

How is everyone else's writing going?
