Metrics Monday – 14th July 2014

Philip HarrisMetrics, Writing0 Comments

Vancouver’s heatwave continues which is making it very tough to work at home. Unfortunately, I’m working on the edits to the first draft of Leah which means I need to work on the PC in my office. I really should get Scrivener set up on my old laptop so that I can work somewhere cooler, like the Sahara or, failing that, the library.


Still, I managed 3,610 words. The vast majority of that was on Leah and that first draft is almost finished.

My wife had a horse riding lesson on Sunday afternoon so I took my iPad along with me and spent half an hour or so working on a chapter by chapter breakdown of my next novel. It’s something I haven’t done before, outlining at a chapter level, and I’m still using the seven point story structure but I think having a more detailed outline as well will help me avoid writing myself into a corner. That’s the plan anyway.

Goals for this week (beyond a couple of more interesting blog posts) is to wrap up Leah and the outline. Shouldn’t be too tricky, even with the heat.
