The Once and Future Novel

As I look at the book I finally completed a first draft for last Halloween after a year of work, I remember much of the story fondly. Yes, it’s confusing because of the bizarre setting. Yes, I probably have too many characters. However, I love the central idea and the world is still close to my heart.

As I look to editing it, I know there will be a lot of work to do.

And I’m looking forward to it. Funny how, after a lot of pulling my few remaining hairs out in the rough draft process, I still like the book. I think I was desperate that I might lose the book after such a long time writing the book. It’s my longest novel.

Today’s my day off. But I’m still gonna work on it.
