Kor’Thank word count: 14,555
Thanks to All Who Bought Echo! And BIG THANKS to those who posted positive reviews on Amazon or Goodreads!!!
News: Alright, I’m still chipping away at Kor’Thank 250 words a day, but I’m also looking over a chapter a day and editing, which is the reason behind the paltry 396 word increase from last week, when it should be 1250 words bigger, if I didn’t edit at all.
As far as Echo 4 goes: right now I’m shifting into what I call “Deep Edit.” That means I’m not really concerned with slash and burn, so much as really looking into what each sentence is saying, if I’ve said it as best I know how, and if it flows into the next sentence as best as it possibly can. The slash and burn is necessary to clear away a lot of fluff so I can quickly perceive the general shape (pace and flow) of the narrative, and now it’s really time to start hammering away. I’ve never made a sword, but I guess this would be the point where it’s starting to look like a weapon, and I’m flattening it out and giving it an edge.
The proof copy of Echo volumes 1 and 2 is on its way, and I’m waiting for a bigger dimension pic from my artist to throw up there and see if that’ll reduce the price AND still look good as a physical book. If that’s possible, then I’ll use the bigger dimensions so I can reduce the page count and thus the price.
That’s it for now! If you’re a writer, I wish you inspired drafting and insightful editing!
