20 August - Week Behind and Week Ahead by janet lane walters
It's always amazing to see something you wrote almost 40 years ago and realize with some cleanup this book could be sold. I'm slowly working on this book between drafts of my current WIP and perhaps this book will also find its way into publication. There are some beginning writer problems and some conventions that years ago were used that will need to be cleaned up but the story is there. For me that's the important thing.
Last week I began the Setting draft of Lines of Fire. There are general bits of setting in the manuscript but what this draft does it to put those bits into specifice. Trees will become specific trees Places will show the characters interacting with the setting and being acted upon. No more existing in a vacuum.
I hope to do at least 4 chapters and perhaps 5. Only time will tell what happens.
