I have, what seems to me, a decent draft of a book. I skimmed it again and again, adding and removing things on a daily basis. I am now challenged with including new plot threads to help spice up the book. But what eludes me right now is how loose the main plot has become. So, that would call for several rewrites until I finally figure out how to do it.
In any case, I’ve just been to the Big Bad Wolf book sale. And the place is amazing. There are books of all sorts and all of them priced at a ridiculous rate. Plenty of Isaac Asinov’s The Foundation books are only about 2 USD. I found a ton of Aliette De Boddard’s The House of Shattered Wings. Am really excited to get into that. There’s also a huge stack of The Traitor Baru Cormorant by Seth Dickinson. Both priced really low.
I’ve also started two new blogs. It’s crazy I know. One is a dedicated author page, which I think, might end up being boring since all the good stuff are being dumped here. The second blog is geared for books and movie reviews. I don’t know if I’ll be able to commit, if not, oh well. At least I’m writing and slowly, very slowly finishing things.
Finally, 2019 so far has a lot of ups and downs. I try not to ignore the downs and search for solutions the make them ups. If I keep a steady pace, I might be able to finish the Red Whale in a few more weeks, then it’s off to my chosen betas. I hope it makes it to the new season of Mark Lawrence’s science fiction and fantasy blog off.
