For those who like to know where I am with the writing, I’m prepping another round of submissions for “Harry” and have begun a round of rewrites on “Catch” while plotting a new series: “Shifted”.
I think the best part of starting a second draft is the first draft is finished. That isn’t meant to be as convoluted as it seems. Because that first draft is done, I know so much more than I did when I started the first. I’ve been living with the characters for quite a while. I get their quirks and I know what drives them. As the hook of the included song says: “I am stronger now, than I was before” because I’m armed with a lot of knowledge. I know the drive and the motivation behind the actions.
The song included is one on this book’s playlist: songs I think would be on my character’s iPods. Songs that would be playing in the background of the pivotal scenes if the book were a movie.
So, while I’m still enamoured with this story and while polishing it up is fun, enjoy the song and my exuberance. When I start finding troublesome plot points, it might be a different story.
