Finally finished the outline of the second draft. Now, to do some reading. A lot of reading. One thing I’m a little nervous about is the ending. It seems like it might be a little too meh. But I’m hoping that someone, somewhere might take pity on me and give me some idea as how to punch it up some.
But I really do need to read a lot.
The question I have now is, how long to wait before I get back to writing full time? I still have some slack in my schedule, so, technically, I could just read and develop until the July 4th weekend.
That would give me a lot of time to recharge my batteries and to go into the second draft with a clear mind. Of course, I’m reaching the age when every moment is a blessing — even more so than usual — so I may just say screw it and start writing sooner rather than later.
But, for the time being, I’m feeling pretty good about where things stand with this project. We’ll see how long that lasts.
