I'm thinking I should have planned a Revision Sprint to go with my First Draft Sprint. I found myself too easily distracted last week, and now I've got a major distraction in the form of a conference this week. And for the next two weekends after that, I have Major Family Stuff to also distract me.
Which means that I'm starting to worry that I'm losing track of the emotional arc of the story.
Which means I'm really tempted to stop and reread the whole thing before continuing when I return from the NECRWA conference.
Today I decided I'm going to try not to. I'll get as far as I can this week, make notes of where the characters are on that arc when I stop, then see if I can simply carry on from there when I get back.
I'm not going to vow that I won't back track, though. I'm not that confident that I'll be able to.
This fear of loss of revision momentum is something I'm going to bear in mind next time and, if it's possible, do the same kind of sprint when it comes to revisions.
