END OF FIRST SWEEP AND TYPING IN REVISIONS

Apart from the fact that today the Queen became the longest reigning Monarch in English history today is notable because I finished typing in the revisions for the first draft of my novel. That’s 54 chapters and a rewritten final chapter. At least now the tenses are fairly consistent and the story makes sense. I’m so glad I’ve managed to incorporate episodes of the life of the real Bill Billings, at least when I knew him in the early 80s; also what poetry was like in the 80s and a few poems to give a bit more flavour of the time. The next job will be just to read through it.

The school term has started so now my writing/revising days are on Wednesdays and Fridays. They are also days I go to the gym.
