Hello, friends! I’ve been wanting to write this update all day long but couldn’t seem to find the time to get around to it.
Draft 4 has been difficult, but much smoother than I expected. As I said last week, I had to rewrite the last 10 chapters completely. Right now, I only have 3 more to go, which I couldn’t be more excited about! If I manage to write Chapter 32 tonight (which I may or may not…), I am on pace to finish by Wednesday! Then I can send it off to my lovely beta readers. It will be out of my hands and I can breathe for a little while longer.
I really think I’m getting close. It’s close to being completely finished. I may need one more polishing draft, but that could be it! I’m still hoping to query by the end of August.
This month, after I email Blood on My Hands to my readers, I’m going to relax a little bit. And by “relax” I mean planning out a new novel and maybe writing some short stories!
At least I know it will be less work than this book.
