In life, as in chess, forethought wins.
I am getting so much better at the showing rather than telling thing. I suspect I am going to have to work through The Novel one more time before I send it off, because there are a couple of things in earlier chapters that need some fixing.
There are 4 or so chapters left to write. The end is in sight, and it is a good feeling. If I can set a target and keep to it every week like I did for this week, I can wrap this up and move onto other things
Of course, the second book in the series is on my list of things I want to write, but I also have an idea for a short story (possibly), and I would like to play with darker themes. I need to learn to kill of someone I like, so I will probably write something short to practice soon.
