Well, I began to think that I should start posting more regularly. I'm thinking bi-weekly should work. Hopefully I can keep to that!
So, I titled this 'home stretch' for a reason. I have seven more chapters to re-write before I send my book to my very kind-hearted beta readers. Of course, once I finish that, my boyfriend still has to go through and make sure I've kept up with the logistical issues we've discussed and all that fun jazz. That's when I can send it out.
I'm grateful to have him helping, especially since the original concept was his idea. There are times that it's extremely difficult. He's very much into minor details and the technical issues, whereas I'm more concerned about developing the characters. Maybe it's a perfect combination, but it definitely caused more than a few heated discussions.
With that being said, I do appreciate the help and his opinions. But I hate having to wait for him to get around to reading each chapter as I finish them. I'm currently re-writing chapter 21, and he's still on chapter 11. I understand that he's in grad school and I don't nag him about reading but I've never been a fan of working on someone else's schedule. I suppose I should get used to that.
I guess that's all for now. Back to the grind, which does not seem to be so rough, actually. I re-wrote five chapters yesterday so I'm back on schedule. Agents, expect to hear from me in April!
