Thought I’d add a quick update about where I am. My last goal was to finish the book and query by 1/20. I did query, but I didn’t quite finish. In my final read-through, I found some things that made me want to go back and look at the story arc again. There are still things that are missing. There are parts that read flat.
Basically the book still needs work.
And these aren’t little things like “I need better word choices”, but bigger things like “why does she do that?” Story questions that still need to be answered. Or asked.
This is that part of writing a book that I still need to learn.
I have a good chunk of time set aside this weekend to work and I hope when I come out the other side I have a plan and a new deadline.
Or better yet, that I made progress and am closer to writing “THE END”.
Lots of ideas for the next book in this series and another unrelated one have been popping into my head lately. It’s way past time to wrap this one up and move on to the new, shiny stories.
