The End of a Cycle

I have completed my second review of The Grand Project, a story which features a hotel that caters to the needs of things that go bump in the night.  At the end of my first review, I ended up with 4039 modifications over the total of the work.  Additionally, there were 41 changes per percent based on the novels length.

This revision felt more brutal, since I did a lot of formatting work to separate out the dialogue from paragraphs.  Looking at my statistics from 28 Feb to 25 Apr 16, I ended up with the following:

  • 4630 modifications for the entire work;
  • 46 modifications per percent;
  • Ghoul Hunters had the fewest changes at 33 modifications per percent;
  • One Small Step had the most changes at 69 changes per percent; and
  • A new chapter Chariots of Thunder was added to the manuscript.

This time around I have more definitive per chapter information, since I collected them after a chapter was completed.  Given that Chariots of Thunder was not part of the initial manuscript, it will not be counted until the next revision.

Another reason for the large amount of changes is related to my reviewing method.  When I review a chapter, I note changes then transcribe them into my manuscript.  I do not re-read the chapter before moving on since that material will be covered during the next review.  Sometimes my changes were improperly transcribed or retained some of the older verses.  Its not perfect, but I prefer to keep momentum.

A couple of months ago, I came across an image featuring two chariots fitted with motorcycles.  This peaked my interests since the caption informed me that this type of activity was popular during the Twenties and Thirties.

Since this coincides with The Grand Project‘s timeline; I came up with a story that would integrate this unique historical anomaly.

This story revolves around a motorcycle stunt driver who was taken after a crash involving the Wall of Death. Explore just what patrons of The Grand will do to keep themselves occupied!
