I love my writer's life, but SOMETIMES I wish I'd make it easier on myself. I write long books, finished length 100,000 words, so they take a while. And then a bit longer because I always over-write and then have to edit, which I consider a good thing as it tightens the writing.
This is the stage I'm at with Bk.3. in 'Lords of the Matrix Club' series. I wrote 'The End' for 'The Virgin Widow' at almost 118,000 words. Only 18,000 to trim!
This morning I've got it down to under 5000 and starting to really have to work at it, but still know I will do it.
Was thinking about it in the shower, getting a little bit excited for 'The End' is truly in sight, when a sneaky little voice in the back of my mind started questioning the motivation for a major plot point.
In zero seconds flat the whole scenario was crystal clear - and I have some re-writing to do...
Have you noticed what an inspirational place the shower is?
It is coming, peeps! I promise those of you hanging out for the Great Bax's story, it is nearly there.
The lovely scoundrel discovers he's lived his whole life a victim of secrets. Several!
Guess he just turned the tables on me. So glad this particular secret was revealed - to me - before I published it!
Here's a sneak-peek at the cover.
