I think I’ve broken my brain


Today I’ve rewritten, revised, and edited almost 5000 words. After being too busy with other stuff for the past two weeks, I haven’t had the time to work on The Locked Room, but I made up for that today.

Look here:


I’ve changed from present to past tense, but mostly I’ve tightened, tightened, and tightened. The result? Seven hundred words less than what I started out with.

That’s a whole lot of unnecessary words if you ask me!

But now my brain hurts. I need someone to get over here, put a bandaid on it, and kiss away my boo-boos 😀

Or I’ll just reward myself with a glass of wine.
