BOOK TWO, DONE!

I am so happy right now because I just finished the second draft of my second book. This book was a little harder to write than the first one, because I wrote certain scenes first and then just cut and paste them in the appropriate sections of the book. Now I added the loose ends and parts of the story that had been missing.

I am going to give the book a resting period of a month, before I officially start editing it. I think a resting period is essential, so that I can look at it with new and fresh eyes. I must say, I am definitely loving the fact that I have gotten to be in novel writing mode. It is definitely the kind of writing that I love the most.

What have you guys been up to?
