I’m moving swiftly towards the finale of my second novel, Of Rock And Earth. It’s considerably shorter than Evinden, but that’s by design – plus the current word count is a little deceptive as the first third of the book needs some serious bulking up once I start editing. Halfway through I had a slight change of narrative style which benefited the story greatly, so I need to go back and weave that into the opening chapters. Such is the way of things when you start a book for NaNoWriMo with little in the way of planning!
It’s a good job that there’s not long to go before a first draft, as I need to focus on editing my dad’s biography, which is going to be a big job. It’s already got a publishing deal in place, so time is pressing. More on that another time.
