Weekly writing check-in: the one with the book launch

Book on a bench.

Book on a bench.

Well, yes, I launched a book this week. I also managed to do a few other things as well. A couple of submissions, some structural work on the story I call Pansy (which is the name of the main character, not the title).

You may remember that I drafted this story last year. And yes, I did. This year, I plan to redraft it. And I will! Or at least, I’m feeling optimistic about the prospect.

Why a redraft? Well, when I reached the end of the first draft, I was all: Oh, so that’s what the story should be. It will be far easier–and faster–to redraft it than to try to revise the original manuscript.

Or so I hope.

All in all, a pretty good week.

  1. You simply amaze me by keep going. I bought your book on my kindle! I will read it soon. Currently, I’m reading a book now that I will adapt to a screenplay. I love the cover of your book too!

  2. Good luck on adapting the book! That sounds like a challenge.
