The Afterglow in Egypt William Holman Hunt

The Afterglow in Egypt, William Holman Hunt

Can’t bring myself to look at Loose Daddy. That poor novel has been languishing for months–completed, final, done, and still I can’t do the final read-through so I can compose the synopsis. I’m afraid of my own words. I’m afraid I’ll only see the flaws, i.e., the flaws I create, discreditng all my effort.

Too much to do writing-wise in this final quarter of the year so Loose Daddy will have to wait until 2010.

Meanwhile, I’m preparing for NANO. Castle in the Air is the working title for this year’s November Novel.

  1. Have you thought of having someone do a reader’s critique on it before you tackle the final work? Or sometimes just taking a break will help you return to it with a fresh eye.

  2. Time = distance = clarity.

    I recently revisited Randy Ingermanson’s Snowflake Method page — hadn’t viewed it for a couple of years — and it was very refreshing. It inspired me to create a new table with columns for the major plot lines to help unravel my current plot issues. Going back over the basics from time to time seems to help.

    Whatever you do, I’m sure you’ll do it well!
