For the last couple months, I only had one thing on my to do list.
- Finish current draft of Too Far Gone.
Well? How’d I do?
Finish current draft of Too Far Gone.
YEAH. That finally happened.
And while I currently feel like this:
I also know there is a ton of work left to do before deadline. I made some rather major changes in what I thought the narrative would be in this draft–ended up cutting over 30000 words in addition to the 15000 or so I added to the manuscript. It was a hard cut, but I think the book will be better for it. And… for the first time since I started working on Too Far Gone, it actually feels like a book and not a loose collection of scenes. I almost didn’t make the deadline. It was down to the last day, but I wrote about 4000 words on the 30th to finish off the last two chapters and type “THE END”.
New month, new goals:
- Clean my office.
- Finish another draft of Too Far Gone.
- Write something for the fun of it over my Christmas holidays (Not sure if this will be my superhero story for Tesseracts 19, or my sekkrit project for the Illuminaughty, or both).
- Maybe take a run at a couple of those yearly goals that can still feasibly be reached.
