With only 6 days* to go until I need to submit my next MFA work, I need a backwards schedule. Here goes:
Finish preliminary revision of my story, finish first drafts of both annotations (which will involve rereading one story)
Do a revision focusing only on making sure each sentence, scene, word is necessary. Also start thinking about the heart of the story and whether it is best expressed (Thanks TI)
Another focused revision, this time going into each scene and making sure it is strong enough. This will mostly mean doing what I said in my last post about getting fully into the scene and making sure it is described well. Also what BostonErin said about making sure the reader can "see" each scene well.
Go over the mechanics that Carolee suggested in my last post's comments.
Read story aloud.
*I'm going away on a yoga retreat next weekend and so I need, need, need to be done with everything on Friday so I can fully relax all weekend.
