The never-ending story
A few posts back I wrote about how I thought the third Cross book only needed about one more writethrough before I could send it to my agent. Famous last words and all that. When I was working on what I thought to be the last writethrough, rushing to get it done before the edits for the second Cross book arrive, I realized the book would be so much better if I just tweaked a couple of flashbacks, which led me to move around some of the plot elements, which then led me to write some more background for a couple of the characters… you get the idea.
Anyway, I finished that draft today. Now I think it only needs one more draft before I can send it off the agent….
