I’m now past the halfway point on the first draft of Blood & Sex, Vol. 4. The last chapter almost put me into shock Sun, when Michael did something I had zero warning on. That has left me with a sense of dead because I have an ominous feeling about the end of the story.
Rewrites will abound on this one. I am getting only the main parts now. Lesser scenes and fine details will come in the next layer. Sometimes, I am amazed by how the story reveals itself.
Im sitting at my laptop typing up editing notes. During this book Ive figured out it’s absolutely necessary for me to print and edit at least once. I need it on paper…it’s just how I roll apparently.
This book has been a slight deviation from my normal routine. The characters are drawn more from real people and situations, and it’s taken longer to develop, but I think it’s going to be better for it. LeAnne, this heroine, is not as much like me as the others. I suppose I’m growing as a writer.
Get ready for the next round, beta readers (my pretties!). The kitchen remodel put me a week behind, but I’m back on the ball again now.
