BACK ON THE ROAD...
I had finished writing the first draft of my book on January 15th of this year, and I said to myself that I would put it all away, and forget the whole thing for two months, clear my head and come back to it later. As of Thursday, those two months are over, and I have now begun the challenging and exciting process of writing the second draft of my book. It might take me all year to get it into a shape that I'm happy with, but by the end of the year, I plan to begin the process of shopping it around to publishers and literary agents. I might get to that earlier, depending on how fast I get through the rewrites.
I have always considered myself better at re-writing, than writing, so it should be an interesting journey. I'm excited about doing the second draft, because while the first draft is all about getting it done, the second draft is all about making it better! I'm all about making it better!!
This experience has been the most emotional and creative endeavors I have ever undertaken, and I look forward to seeing where it all takes me.
Hopefully further than down the street...
On a completely unrelated note, I should point out that I have finally set up my links properly, and they should all be working, so feel free to go on a journey and explore the kinds of sites I like to travel to.
