Did I Start Revising My Fourth Draft? | BTS Writing Vlog #14

by | A week in the life of a writer, A Writer Writes, Behind the Scenes, BTS Vlogs, WriterADHayTV

Hello, Book Lovers!


It feels as If I’ve been revising and editing the same novella for an eternity. Well, maybe not, but it certainly feels like that. Over the last few weeks, I’ve been slowly adding editing notes to my fourth draft.


So, did I finish editing my thriller novella and start revising my fourth draft of Missing?


In this vlog, you’ll receive the answer to that question and many more.


In this fourteenth Behind the Scenes writing vlog, I discuss:

  • My editing and revision plans for the week.
  • An update on what I achieved so far in terms of editing my crime thriller novella.
  • And, I’m finally making progress in regards to breaking my procrastination habit.
  • The dental implant procedure I was recovering from in the very first writing vlog.
  • Whether I finished editing the second act of my story.
  • Some exciting new plans for NaNoWriMo (yes, I know it’s a bit early).
  • My plans to tackle the edits for act three of my novella.
  • If I completed the edits for act three.
  • The events that lead to the nine day gap in the vlog.
  • A personal health update.
  • And, if I started revising my fourth draft.


Thanks for watching!


With love,

Amelia xx
