I have done an update in some time. My personal life has been quite hectic these past six weeks, which has provided me with little time for my writing. But things have slowed down enough over the past two weeks to allow me to get back to my poor neglected manuscript. No matter what goes on in your life, you eventually get drawn back to writing.
Over the past two weeks I finished off 59 pages of editing and really liking how this story is coming along. I’ve gotten lots of feedback from Twitter followers and my CP Karen on portions of the manuscript. This is rounding into a funny little novel. Barring additional distractions, I’m hoping to complete this draft around the second half of November and begin the next phase. I’ll be sending my manuscript out to beta readers for feedback and then another round of editing. Anyone interested in being a beta reader can contact me. Not sure what a beta reader is? That’s the subject of a future post.
I’m doing something a little different with this story. The main character is a chef so, I thought it would be fun to provide the recipe of every dish mentioned in the book. I’ve begun compiling recipes, which will be included in an Appendix at the back of the book.
This is going to be a busy week but hope to get another few chapters edited. I’ll keep you posted.
