Work on the novel is going well. Today I’m taking a day off for a date with friend Donna to see Van Gogh exhibition. I have to get ready in a minute. I’ve spent some time trying to post photos of my darling granddaughter (she’s five) when she saw the same exhibit. There’s an installation of his painting of his bedroom–she’s posing in it! So cute. But those photos are on a private family account. Plus the other thing where Word Press does not like a jpeg anymore.
My blogette on Twitter didn’t work, either. I wrote it last Monday and it disappeared. One person did retweet it before that happened. I’ll try the blogette again next week. Maybe with my own Van Gogh photos. But for today, I typed Van Gogh into Pexels and got pages and pages of people driving vans. Ha!
Took 3 days to revise 10 pages. I moved a subplot so that was quick and easy. Mostly what I did was take out boring parts and add in some color. I noticed even when I was doing the revision without stop that I had mostly dialogue. I kept going. Next weekend we’re having a writing Zoom meeting so I revised and added lots of description. Well, not too much. I had one goal with this revision and the description helped.
My goal: go somewhere. Take the story from negative to positive or positive to negative. And I did it. I try to do that with every scene. Make it move. Van go!
