The final rewrite of the manuscript is done. I know there will be a few sentences rewritten when I edit but that’s okay. This latest re-write has completely changed the ‘tune’ of the book. It’s grittier and sexier now and I hope packs a bit of a punch.
I’m frantically zooming through a first edit before I give it to trusted persons for a review (as in have I screwed up anything major? Made a boy a girl by a key-slip?) and if anyone out there is interested in giving it a shot I’d love to hear from you! Please keep in mind it isn’t a critique I’m looking for so you need to be able to keep yourself quite ‘neutral’. Also you need to be a speedy reader!
I’m going to have a break over the weekend as the girls and I are going on a ROADTRIP!! Very excited right now (and in the midst of packing).
We are off to Rotorua tomorrow to go luging and cuddle lion cubs and then on to Tauranga for Fri night and Sat at Tracey’s (Sian’s sister). Then Sunday we’re off to Hamilton to catch up with Kerrin! Yes the Kerrin who comments on here and some of you may follow her writing blog *grin*
I’m intending on filming as much as possible and then cutting it all into an awesome little montage so you can tag along with us.
I can’t leave all my work behind though (time constraint and all…) so I’ll be taking my laptop and working on the cover design. The laptop battery only has a 2hr life so I won’t be able to be too boring ; p (though I’ll charge it up each night *hee*)
Have a great weekend everyone!
