This is what I thought today, after cutting another 500+ words from chapter three.
And this is supposed to be my finishing draft. One last quick read through.
I understand why, and it wasn’t as odious as it sounds, but I know what most people think.
Take my father, for instance. He TOTALLY doesn’t get it. For him, its been years of asking how I’m doing, a me never finishing.
“When’s that book gonna be done, son?”
He’s probably given up. Along with a lot of other people.
But I am almost done.
Six months. 5 new chapters. 14K less words. (Make that 14.5 and counting.)
An almost complete rewrite.
What’s next? Finish this pass! Then a final draft on Witness It, so that can go to the editor too. And then…
I have to learn a whole knew batch of skills.
