Making excellent progress on my next book, Magic Comes to Whiteport (working title). I've just now finished the second draft, and I'm much happier with it now.
My original schedule was for MCtW to be out by the end of the year, and at the rate things are going, I might even be a bit early. That would be great, so I'm going to try to do that.
I'm going to let the draft sit for a week or so, giving my mind a chance to think about other things, then I'm going to come back and start working on a third draft. Or second-and-a-bit draft; I'm not sure what the technical classification would be. There are some great characters in MCtW, and I'm going to go back and spend some more time with each of them, to make sure they have a chance to shine.
But right now, it's a beautiful day, it's Victoria Day (God save the Queen!) and I'm headed outside to do, er, outsidey things. Wish me luck.
