As I mentioned in June, things have now changed to allow me a fair bit more time for writing. If all goes well, I'm hoping to get MCtW out the door by Christmas.
To that end, I'm delighted to have received some constructive feedback from Lia and Jaye, who have given the current draft a very honest going-over. There's a lot of work still to be done, and I'm looking forward to getting started.
One of the things I need to take care of is to create a better beginning. When working through a number of different drafts, chapters get added and removed and rearranged, and sometimes (like now) it turns out that the original introduction has been moved, which leaves some of the later chapters hanging a bit. I want to make sure the story is set up properly, so that the rest of it flows from it.
I'm infinitely grateful to have people who will give me honest feedback. It will make for a much better book in the end.
Welp, time to find my pen and get to scribbling!
