Thank you Kate
I didn't think it was a big deal since so many people are flying through this course and I feel so behind...but it DOES feel amazing to be able to say I'm not going to give up on my book.
I think, to really be a writer, you've gotta have spirit and tenacity. So you all have it too!
Larkk I agree with you 100%!
I know I will never stop learning from this course. Each time through will be a different journey, bringing something else to the table. It's well worth the cost so far. Yup, even if our books DO happen to be wrecked, I still think its important to get through the revision. For me more so because I have never truely revised before. Not anything other than line editing anyway. So this is a huge step for me.
That's what I'm hoping for Emily!
For you as well!
Felicia I'm hoping it continues to go well too! My next worry is Lesson 7...I've never been the best worldbuilder so it will be tough. How far are you in Lesson 1? You're still new, but I thought I saw somewhere else that you were almost finished with the lesson? And I guess it is a Eureka moment because I DO feel like I've overcome quite a bit!
Space Quest is an awesome movie!
And an idea that I should take heart Cat!
Thanks all for your supportive responses. I'm crossing my fingers it continues to go well.
p.s- My SFRs aren't great. Some are downright horrible. But at least I'm understanding what I'm doing and WHY certain scenes don't work. Before I couldn't quite put my finger on it.
Oh, and I'm also glad because I'm sure it won't take me months to complete either.
