The First Re-Draft is Complete

musings(1)

I have completed my first re-draft, but don’t let that fool you, I have much much more work to do. The first re-draft involved a brief re-work of a couple chapters and adding two new ones. The new additions are raw bones at the moment, just so I can get a feel of the narrative as it is. The second re-draft is a redraft of the first redraft. Urgh. However, after reading through my manuscript, I am happy to say that I am still in love with it- phew!

thank you god

What’s next?

Well, seeing as today is my birthday…yep, another year older. The big *cough* 30 *cough*. I shall be celebrating in various ways over the next week or so. Then, it’s my hubby’s 30th in another 12 days, so, of course, we shall be celebrating that too.  I will do my best to spend a fortnight or so on the second redraft, and then the intense editing begins. I will post more when I have more to say. As of right now, I am going with the flow, and have no deadline to stick to. It’ll be ready when its ready.

Cheeky excerpt:

I glower at Teal with every bit of darkness I can muster. “I have not finished talking!” I bellow. I know how to make men listen to me and it involves raising my voice, spelling things out in simpleton speak, and threats. He does not back down from me, but his hands twitch in irritation. “Reed is my Head Guard, and you will accept your Princess’ wishes. Oh, and if you so much as raise your hand to him again, I give him permission to hack your arm from your torso and beat you to death with it. Now, get out of my chambers.”
