"The Hope of Hattie Phelan", Writing Process, Writing Updates

Developmental Edits Are In! | THOHP

Hello, fellow campaigners of the writing world! A. F. Kopp here and I’m back from a short hiatus of one week. Lol. But, hey! First post of the year!

As you can tell from the title of this post, I have received my developmental edits for the Hope of Hattie Phelan! So, I’ve been slowly working on it, telling myself I need to do it for at least 30 minutes a day. I’ve only done this 2 out of the 4 days that I’ve had it, haha. Today I’m gonna try to work on it more than anything. I can’t do much other stuff since I’ve somehow managed to hurt my Achilles tendon… But I have a job interview today, so we’ll see how much I can get done.

But, it’s definitely a learning curve because firstly, I did my copyedits first… Not the smartest, lol. Secondly, I have to add more of a “plot” to it. I have an idea of what I want to do, so that’s a bit easier (but it took me a few days to come up with it). And I couldn’t do much of it cuz when I got the edits, we were about to move across 7 different states, haha. A few days later is when I started. That was like four days ago.

I am looking forward to working on it, strengthening the writing weaknesses in my characters and storyline (and writing style) so that I can put together a story to publish. I would LOVE for it to be finished all the way by May (as well as formatted) so that I can publish it, but I’m not holding this to my head. I also want to be able to focus on Uncitizens and other fun things.

Well, that’s all I have for you today, but I’ll try to be more consistent with uploading. I’ve been horrible about that for the past couple of months. I mean, I have been moving, but I could at least throw something interesting together.

Thanks for reading!
