Well the news is that Ticked Off has finally hit a milestone – the first draft has been finished. I’m not totally delighted with it, but that’s the point of first drafts – at least the story is down on the page in a relatively coherent way.
I’ve passed it on to another author, who I’ll talk about in a later post, to do an assessment and after that I’ll work on what needs to be done to make it publishable.
In the meantime I can take a little bit of a holiday from the book, work on a few other things, and look at it afresh in a few weeks. The hard work, i.e. the rewriting, will start when I get that report back!
Hopefully it will be ready to release in June, depending on how much needs to be done, but it’s a very exciting and satisfying place to be in right now.
