Yes, when inspiration strikes you can pound out thousands of word with ease, but that’s JUST the draft. A rough mash-up of ideas that won’t look anything like the end result (or shouldn’t ;p). I am still waiting on getting the manuscript from the editor and no, this isn’t unusual or in anyway wrong. I know lots of you are sitting on the edges of your seats waiting for Feel the Burn – cause I am too! – but the most important thing next to getting the book out is getting it out right. Good things really do take time. And having learned so much with writing the first two books I’ve narrowed down the field of those who work on my books. Only the best will do *grin* And that’s all about skill and the time taken to complete the job to the highest standard. I’ll never be an indie who flashes a book out in a month. That’s not a book in my eyes, that’s a draft that’ll need a lot of re-working. The more time I spend at this writing game, the more I learn and the more I want to fix my previous writing *lol* While I wait for Feel the Burn I’m re-working The Arrival, making the language more active and double-checking I don’t have any accidental slip ups in plot. It’s the little things that can catch you unawares! Thanks for the emails and messages, I love knowing that you’re as excited as I am about Feel the Burn and I can promise the wait will be worth it.
Take care all!
