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
- 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
