Here is a secret. I finished this book (plot line, characters, locations, scenes, all that stuff) over a year ago.
A YEAR AGO!
So, Geoff, what the heck you been doing?
Glad you asked. I’ve been “polishing” the book. Change a word there. Rephrase a sentence here. Etc. For a year. Or more.
Sigh, okay. It was a good learning experience. My next book, which I may start writing as soon as next month, will be done differently. So, do much/most of the polishing up front as I write the book.
Uh huh. Right.
Okay, probably won’t be that easy, but I’ll figure something out : ) Pretty sure I can move it along a lot faster than I did the first book.
Why did I take so long on the first book (besides the polishing)? Yeah, I’ll have to post about that also.
