Last night I finally started a (planned-to-be-quick) revision of The Navel of the World, the second book in the Forgotten Worlds Trilogy (you know, The Emerald Tablet is the first book).
And I love when I start reading and am actually pretty happy with things.
It's interesting... the last time I revised was about 6 months ago (on this book). The main thing I notice has improved in my writing is my use of actions instead of tags to show more about the actual character rather than just telling who is speaking. So this is the main thing I've changed so far.
Yes, part of this was probably the writing exercise I undertook of writing a novel with zero tags.
But in case anyone has missed this amazing blog somehow, I'd just love to point out The Emotion thesaurus thanks to Angela and Becca. This blog rocks. Check it out!
Want some quick fun? Head over to The Class of 2k8 blog today where I give three possible endings to The Emerald Tablet. You get to pick which one you think is the real ending.
Yeah, this one was fun to write!
Hope everyone is having a great Thursday!
