Tenses are switched

So  I did it. I finished converting a mixed tense manuscript to all present tense (except for the flashbacks which are in past). I actually can't believe it, all 204 pages, and I'm giddy about it. I still have a lot of work to do. Some fill  in stuff, re-doing the beginning then check the plot things (kill some darlings, you know, the usual). I'm down right excited. And the cup of inspiration is filled.

See I'm hyping myself up for the next round of revisions.

So hype yourself up, people. Situations change, people change, learn, grow, and write, write, write. Only you hold the key to your success.

Inspiring? Good. Now if I could only psych myself into running. I'm going to eat a piece of chocolate and some baked Cheetos (don't ask).

Have a great weekend
 Oh and I tried so hard to embed this all sorts of awesome movie poster for a little movie called The Hunger Games, but the darn thing gave me trouble. So go check it out here (the first novels club, because those gals are way more talented than me at embedding this stuff) or here.

Can't wait for it!!


  1. Wow, you switched all the tenses? That must have been a lot fo work! Congrats on finishing!
    Enjoy that cake and Cheetos!

  2. Congratulations on your hard work. Hope you enjoyed the snacks, you earned them :)

  3. Oh wow, congratulations! That's such a great feat -- I can't imagine having to do that myself.

  4. Well done Chis. I'm joining you on the chocolate. Yummy.

  5. I still switch my tenses all the time. Thankfully my betas and CPs catch this for me because I really need the help.
