Yesterday I finished draft # 2 of my new novel. Well, finished–the very last scene is only sketched in. I was too tired to actually write it!
As you can see, there are birds. Also baby goats. Volcanoes and vultures and a haunted turret. This one is affectionately known as my Off the Wall Book.
I lay awake last night thinking of all the changes I need to make. And feeling the usual self-doubt. But underneath it all, a percolating excitement. I’m on my way, I’ve got a story worth crafting. A writer can’t ask for more.
