I’m still on schedule for revising In My Blue World, but MAN does it feel like it’s taking forever. Some days there’s not too much to fix and I get get a good chunk done, and other days — like yesterday — I have to completely rewrite a major scene. I’m about halfway through the novel and working off the revision notes I’d made during our UK trip a few months ago. There are chapters where the notes will say “good — lengthen a bit — tidy up” and others where the notes go on for almost a full page explaining what I need to change. Such is the writer’s life.
But I’m soldiering through. I’m not sick of the book (yet) and I’m not at the ‘oh god this sucks’ level yet (which is always a good sign), but I really wish I was a little closer to finishing it up!
Still, I’m still on schedule to release it at Smashwords sometime in February. The book cover’s already done of course. I might follow through and do a trade for this one as well, depending on if I can get interest in it.
In the meantime, as soon as I’m finished with this one, I’ll FINALLY be able to work on the Apartment Complex book! I might even have a title for it by then!
