As I write yet another version of this novel, I find myself thinking about how it fits in the market place as well as how strong the story is. The story, at the moment at least, is interesting, easy to read page turner. But I have to admit to myself that some of the characterizations are rather weak because the characters are more “vibes” and “placeholders” than real people.
But, as I love to tell myself at these moments, “You can’t edit a blank page.”
So, I’m going to go through my latest outline and write the best draft I can. I know this story and the universe so well that things are really beginning to fall into place.
But, I have to admit, even I am growing tired of me talking about this project. I feel like shutting up — but I’m 100% extroverted and I tend to get drunk and feel like talking about the main thing going on in my life at the moment: this novel.
As such, I keep talking and writing about this six novel project because at the moment it’s pretty much the only thing going on in my life at the moment.
