A perfect time to write.
I finished the second half of the book by my November deadline and talked to Shannon, my editor. She suggested I do the re-writes before she read it again (she's busy), so off I went. However, as is usual with me, I got bogged down. I compare my writing to building a house. First I build the framing, then I go back and add the wires and insulation and drywall and... --you get the idea-- as I do the rewrites.
Well, I found it quite hard to add details to the second half since the first half hasn't been re-written, so back to the beginning I went and that's where I'm at now. It is going well and meshes well with the ending. But I need to hurry up and finish this book! The world needs to read about Junya. I can't wait to introduce you.
I'll keep you posted.
