Thurs. July 18, 2013: Obsessed with Revision

Struggling with the last third of the revision yesterday, I suddenly realized the whole book needed to be rewritten in first person.

Anyone who’s done that kind of revision knows it’s far more than replacing pronouns. Switching POV is a massive rewrite.

I managed the first 89 pages/5 chapters before my meeting, and about another 60 pages when I got home. This is the key that unlocked the book. NOW, finally, it feels right.

Also completed my week’s work for both archaeology and climate literacy, and worked with students.

But now — back to the revisions!

  1. It sure is massive. I’ve done it. Takes a lot out of a body! Good luck with it.
