(I literally had to double-check that since I always mix up the days, and should that have been the case then the sparkling wine and dessert waiting in the fridge would certainly have a pretty anti-climactic evening.)
I finished chapter 8 today on my second draft, which was a huge accomplishment since it was a complete mess before. I basically had to rewrite the whole thing. It was also full of new and important information so some of it had to be moved to the next chapter. I have talked about that sort of thing before, where you have to think of a chapter layout that works for you and your story and try to stick to it – and sometimes that means merging or splitting up chapters.
I’ve decided that this will be the first subject of my writing vlog next week! It feels really great to plan videos in advance. I’ve actually planned my next four or five videos now. I haven’t really managed that so far – I’ve sort of just decided a couple of days before filming, which was kind of stressful in some cases (let’s not go back into the abyss that was my video editing problems). It’s really quite odd since I’m so good at planning stuff beforehand in all other aspects of my life – but when it comes to Youtube I’m not very structured at all. Time to change that!
Anyway. Here I am blogging at 6p.m. on a Friday wearing a fancy dress and an apron. I should probably get back to making dinner now.
Have a happy weekend!
