Koala Challenge 9

I don’t believe I missed another editing point by 26 words! [headdesk x a dozen]

It also makes my writing log look weird. I do my best to keep track of how things are going, wordcount-wise, and when I go through editing I usually have some weird little number. Figure, you delete some, add some, rewrite a sentence or a paragraph, diddle with your wording here and there, and after how ever many hours of work you end up with a total of 18 words over where you were before. Which looks ridiculous on the table, like I did ninety seconds of writing that day. Editing’s like that, though. :/

Anyway, one of my New Year’s goals was to be on Koala Approves (at least nine points) every month this year. I just made it for January, thanks to the Koala granting us a one-time point for posting a bio on the New-Challenge-Starting-Yay post. I’ll have to do it all on my own this month, and with three fewer days too, yikes!

Back to work. 🙂
