Guysguysguys!! I just completed a first draft of the sequel to Demon’s Heart! It’s jumpy and plot-holey and awkward, but it’s done! There was a point at the beginning of the month where I had begun to despair of reaching my goal of finishing this draft before July, but something clicked and it happened. Now I can move on from just making it to making it worth reading.
So the next step is to set the sequel aside and return to Demon’s Heart for a month with my fabulous editor. It will be good to go back and refresh that first book in my mind; then I can start hacking away at #2 with full force.
How goes it with everyone else’s writing/reading goals for the summer?
