I wasn't sure if I should start progress journal since it's quite a new idea for me, but I thought, why not give it a try? So let's go. The novel I'm working on is a young adult story about a boy who can change into a wolf. Currently I finished my first "offical" draft (I had one before but only on paper and I rewritten it on the computer so it doesn't count for me). The story has 20 chapters. I intend to print everything out and read it and see what needs to change (and I already know it's a lot!). Reading it on paper helps me to see it from a different perspective. I finished writing it a month ago, but left it so it would cool off and I could work on it without this "I hate looking at it again" thing. I intend to finish it till the end of September just in time for my sister's birthday. What I want to give her won't be the last draft of course, but much more polished than the one I have now. I'm really hoping she would tell me what to change etc. Right now, I want to get rid of some innacurances like names of the places that changed throughout writing, some facts I forgot to mention. Then I'll print it and get my highlighter pen and get to the least enjoyable part of the writing! So, rewriting. I'll update this thread as soon as I print it.
