When I first started my During the Blue Hour series project. After writing my first draft in the interim of revising and going into my 2nd draft which I’m currently on.
I read my complete first draft and then I went line by line, made notes and then went scene by scene and started voice recordings of what I wanted to change . This was done for every chapter within my 1st draft in 2013. Yes I still used a cassette player or cd back then.
Oh I am so glad I did this. Because you know what? At this moment at a time where I’m diving right into my 2nd draft and trying to remember things I thought I wrote down , which appears I never did, well I recorded it in voice notes .
And the other day I found these voice notes and sat down and listened to them and well I’m so glad I found them because they are filling in the blank spots of my mind where I want the story to go. I got a lot of voice notes and a lot to go through . I’m sure I’m going to have some great finds that will help me with my 2nd draft. Because I sort of misplaced the annotated versions of my first drafts so yeah this is helping me a lot.
