Hunter High 2.0 Complete!

I wrote the last sentence of Hunter High on July 24 around 10:35 p.m. What a feeling! Whoo hoo. The entire story is complete, all 279 pages of it, and now I just need to revise. Having a whole week at a cottage to focus on finishing my second draft was such a luxury. I’d get up, eat breakfast, gaze at the water, go inside, and then write like a maniac.

I’m totally looking forward to revising. I need to review for character development, pacing, story structure, etc. Also, did I plant enough/too many clues? Does each scene move the story forward? Then on to the actual line editing.

In my reading world, I’ve enjoyed:

  • Sandman, Books 1 and 2
  • Danse Macabre (I can’t believe I’ve never read this Stephen King book before)
  • Prom Nights from Hell
  • Tales from the Script (a great non-fiction book about writing for movies)
  • Fahrenheit 451
  • 11/22/63
  • When You Are Engulfed in Flames (David Sedaris is the ultimate in shorty story humour: self-deprecating, deadpan, downright hilarious)

And next up:

Game of Thrones
