In process: February 2017



1st draft
I started the month with maybe 2000 words of the haunted house novel, which is more for sketching and experiments right now.
Not sure if it’s really first drafts (I’m calling this the third actually), but I also spent a good deal of time writing in-fill content for WWS.

Editing

“Top of the Stairs”. Implemented OWW commentary. I learned something here about marking my POV, which I did very badly in the first-subbed draft.
“Wind/Water/Salt”. Posted chapter 3 to OWW. Implemented some (but not all) Chapter 1 OWW commentary.
Working on Chapter 4, I realized something important about chapter 1. I’m now thinking, leaving old chapters on OWW in the Library Shelves section, well, Ch1 will be so different by the time my draft is finished, it’s not like anyone could read it through and get the full effect anyway.

Knitting
Ann Boleyn (1998).  Started the month with the second sleeve maybe 25% done. Did a massive push over the Family Day weekend, and that sleeve is finished. I’m trying to plan a way to finish this before… October?
Okracoke cardigan (Shirley Paden). Ignored.
Shorts (from Knitting Lingerie Style by Joan McGowan-Michael). Finished.
Lace cuffs. Finished, but not before the second one suffered lace collapse and I had to start over. Because I’m too cool to use lifelines.
Sheer Beauty (Knit, Swirl). This turned out to be a great thing to work on in the car.  I’ve done the first five bands.
