First Draft Complete!
I finished the first draft of Fort Davis Rocks a week ago, got it to a test reader, and have been making revisions in line with his excellent suggestions. At this point I can’t afford an editor; I will do what has worked in the past. I will get preliminary copies of the final manuscript printed (CreateSpace) and give them to a broader group of friends for comments. I am going to buy cover art.
I have made many improvements to the story in the last week. I find that I get too close to the story at the end, and can’t see the forest for the trees. My friend says it is my best story yet and my dialogue is excellent. I am pumped!
