Do we really need to eat this much? #sailing #writetip
I think I’ve turned into a spreadsheet junky.
I have just reached a first draft of my third novel. Now I study the spreadsheet I created as I was writing the novel, decide at the best order of scenes, where the chapter breaks should be, do I have enough scenes with the main characters, etc.
As if my head wasn’t exploding with details, but I was feeling so productive and decided it was time to do some provisioning. So out came spreadsheet number two. After two years of updating this spreadsheet, I know exactly how much food we eat.
Every season, I write down when we run out of food or if we have left overs at the end of the season. It’s getting pretty accurate. During the season I add lines if there is something we were missing. Last year, I didn’t bring enough honey. One little bottle. What was I thinking? I love honey.
Today it’s back to my writing spreadsheet and the hard work of editing that first draft.
