And the second draft starts…now
So…you might have noticed that I haven’t been around much lately. There were a few reasons for this, but I can sum them up pretty easily: Grad School is hard.
With that said, my workload has started to calm down a little and I’ve decided to take advantage of this by starting the second draft of my main WIP. As you may recall, I decided to take a month or so off from this project so let myself see it with clean eyes; by now, then, my eyes ought to be about as clean as can be. Indeed, I went through my opening scene today and…well, it’s clear I still have a lot of work ahead of me. Rather than merely edit the scene, I ended up re-writing most of it from scratch. Still, I’m happy with the result, and that’s the main thing.
I’m planning an increase in this blog’s activity to coincide with this new draft, though I’m not going to make any firm promises on the schedule just yet. I’ll be starting with the usual book reviews (next up: The Lives of Tao) and also some general thoughts on writing, before moving onto things more specifically about the WIP as the draft gets further along. Said WIP, of course, is pretty much THE reason I call myself “The Parasite Guy” on WordPress. Won’t that be fun?
