LIKE A PHOENIX RISING FROM MY KEYBOARD
Posted on March 27, 2017
It's a great feeling to be jumping back into writing The Powers That Flee, the broken book that I'd finished in January and now need to rewrite in a big way.
Keith's tough critique of the book was a setback, but I didn't let it get me down.
This eighties power fantasy is a project I really want to see released. I pulled together a gripping Prologue for it in the past two weeks and now I'm looking at close to fifteen days of writing over the next three weeks while I'm tracked out.
I'm working on chapter one right now, and it's really coming together. Keith Robinson read the original and commented on how much he liked the way I wrote school scenes. Well, this reworked version definitely puts the pressures of going to school in the eighties front and center.
I am pleased to see the tight chapter summary I crafted about four weeks ago is helping me keep my head down and make lots of forward movement.
The goal is to finish the book in the next three weeks and prepare it for publication for the end of May. I am thankful that my personality doesn't admit defeat, that I didn't abandon this book because my first efforts came up so short. This second time through is really paying off, and I can't wait to see the final product wow Keith and my readers.
Later. I've got some good old teen angst to pen.
