All seven manuscripts of The Highest One Writing are rebuilt. I meant to only work on it for an hour today but I wound up working on it literally all day and now it’s done. It’s fuckin’ done. The books look wonderful and the rebuilding process is done. Tomorrow I’m planning on starting in on Flowers and finally getting back to Step 1 of the Over the River editing process. Work is getting done, noted reader. The day was productive.
As far as revising The Highest One Writing goes, here’s the plan: I’m going to work on it for an hour or so every day. I don’t have a time limit for this, I need there to be no time limit if I’m going to do it right, and I’m not going to rerelease any of the books until they’re all done. Don’t be mad, that’s just how I need to do this. If I get the first two books in The Fall of the Seven Earths done before I get Over the River done-… actually, I’ll put all 3 of them out at once too. They’re part of one story, I might as well. When Over the River is out I’ll do The Monksville Chronicles, then I’ll get to Untitled Bigfoot Project. I’m doing UBP last because I discovered that it’s part of its own spiral called Novelwriter and saving it for last works out. In my mind, at least. When I get going I might scrap this plan completely, time will tell.
My goal is to never have to go back to my old work again. The Great Revamp will be the last time I revisit old work until I own my own printing press and I can exert 100% creative control over my books. Maybe. I don’t know. But the goal is to do the books right from here on out, to complete them to the degree that I’ll never feel the need to go back and work on them again. That is the goal. There are no time limits, and I’m working on it for at least an hour every day. What can go wrong?
Since you’re there, noted reader, thank you for being there. From this day on, we move forever forward~
