Poetry Meme

Via eeknight, kradical, and suricattus. Because one has to do something when trying to avoid the last pages of old material in a rewrite. Though I'm not sure about the unfriendly bit. Perhaps I am a triolet, instead, as the quiz suggested.



Short, terse, unfriendly,
Yet sometimes quite emotive;
I am the Haiku.
What Poetry Form Are You?

Out With The Old ...

Two days past 90 and I'm finally through all the rewrite material. Sitting on page 452. The prior draft was 450 pages. I'd say I'm probably a fifth or a quarter into the last chapter. Which is about 24 pages long so far. So 75 to 100 more pages? Nah, can't be that much more. Except, Rule #3* is still in effect. So ... make it a minimum of 50 pages left. That doesn't look as daunting.

This is the part where I didn't know how many pages it would take to reach the end. I still don't have any complaints about how Novel in 90 ran. I'm only 1-2 pages ahead of my prior page count, and this is after cutting and trimming and polishing and even adding a whole new chapter (a short one; only nine pages) at the beginning to show some background and leave less implied than before.
