So as mentioned previously, I am currently on a writing retreat in Kent, CT. My goal for this retreat was to complete revisions on my middle grade novel.
I can now report that I have done that.
Of course it will need another pass to smooth down and polish the new sections (two new chapters were added), but the novel feels like it’s in much better shape than it was before.
Additionally, I completed revisions on another novel that I had written years ago and that I (hopefully) beat into better shape.
So I’m feeling successful right now.
The retreat ends tomorrow morning, but I’m holding out hope that I can finish up a short story by the end. I already completed one (these are already in progress – so it’s really not that impressive) but if I can go home with two novels and two short stories in very close to finished state, I will be happy.
For the second novel, though, I’ll need new beta readers, so if you’d like to read through a less than 60K word YA post-apocalyptic fantasy novel with brown people, let me know.
Back to writing…
