Hellhound: Stick a fork in it, the first draft is done
That little wolfy dude in the pic looks happy, doesn’t he? No? Maybe he does in his own way. Maybe that’s how he shows that he’s having a good time. His tail might be wagging. You don’t know… You know his life! Erm… yes… Well, I’m sure he is happy – the first draft of “Hellhound” is done!
Okay, so we’re still a LONG way from the actual finish line, but I thought the completion of the first draft of “Hellhound” was worthy of a little celebration. So, tonight, I’m going to take a break, have a cider, eat some haggis (for the first time ever – it is Burns Night after all) and ready myself for the many rounds of editing that await me.
In a way, I’m looking forward to the editing process. I feel like I’ve got a base that I’m relatively happy with, and that I should be able to sculpt it into something safe for human consumption. Plus, I’ve got a new toy to play with; I’m going to be using AutoCrit to help me this time. It’s all very exciting.
As well as editing, I’ll also be sorting out the cover (which features work by a VERY talented artist) and tweeting. I imagine that I’ll be tweeting a lot. Watch this space.
