I’m done with my second draft! I’m done with my second draft! La la lalalalalla!!!!
It’s such a high, getting to closer and closer to the day when I type The End.
Tomorrow, I work on a comic book project, “Do You Feel Loved?” I have two artists who are very interested…they’re both friends from online, so I’m going to try and work with them both. Another sweetie from the board is more of a writer, but he really wants to do something… It’s so exciting, I went from no artists to two who will hopefully be enchanted with my stories over night. I hope it works out, and I hope I don’t mess it up.
When I have the script under way, I intend to go over Blue Moon and answer questions and edit. When I mean answer questions, I go through a book, and I read it, and as I’m reading it, questions will pop up. I write them down as I go along…
Are Zorovin’s eyes always silver?
Where did Alex get that hatchet?
then I go back and resolve them in the text.
Next then will be the print out and read (how I hate to waste the ink and paper….but on the other hand, since I can’t always catch mistakes on screen, I can’t afford *not* to.) My readers will then read the stuff.
Then I run the corrections, then I print it out one last time. (Well, not *last*, since I will be printing out partials for agents….)
Then I am done. If there are not a lot of mistakes to fix, I may not print it out the last time. But I do want a copy of my book. Balancing Act, the copy of the ms that went to the first agent, when it was rejected, I hole punched it and put it in a binder. The binder has since been a very nice easy reference tool for me.
Blue Moon, barring major changes, will be about 452 pages long. It’s quite a bit longer that Balancing Act, but then Blue Moon is a stand alone, I think.
I am so excited! EEE!
Ok. Back to my calm, dour self.
