BRIEF: finished my Breakfast Club meets Magicians novel first draft. Clocked in at just under 50k words, which makes it more of a novella. Next draft will likely push it into novel territory, but that’s at least 6 months away while I do other stuff.
OTHER STUFF: I’ve always regretted splitting Rethana’s story into two books. Readers, in fact, did not love me for it. Always intended to release an updated, single-volume Author’s Preferred Edition for 10th anniversary year. Realized a week ago that 10th anniversary year is 2022. So I’m now thoroughly entangled in re-reading and editing a decade-old story and sobbing over all the red the pages are bleeding. Nothing like revisiting an old work to show you how much you didn’t know about writing when you thought THIS BOOK IS DA BOMB or whatever the kids are saying these days.
OTHER OTHER STUFF: is mostly sad and I don’t want to write about it yet, so. Later.
