well, now that you've all heard about my latest dating scare*, I thought I'd fill you in on something far more interesting. That being my latest wip, whose first page you may remember from this post, in which Dianne and I shared our first pages with you. She has since moved on to something else (which I absolutely love, btw) while I am down to my last three chapters (have you noticed my word count rising every few days?). Yep, three more chapters and I am done - with the first draft.
After which I get to move on to draft #2, in which I will add sensory details, check for continuity, pacing, motivation, and a host of other things Dianne has suggested. Needless to say, I've already purple penned myself.
At this point, I'll be looking for a couple of beta readers and once they've given me their opinion I'll go to draft #3, then back to my cp's for a final read through before beginning the query process - again.
At least that's the plan.
* I've decided that if he makes any further attempts to engage my attention I shall simply be honest and say, I'm so sorry, I'm writing a book and am much too busy to give you the attention you deserve (aka time of day).
