The most recent draft of Old Wounds is done. I have been working on this novel for several years, because I can't
decide what to do with it, which is probably a sign right there.
My main issue is that I think there is good stuff in
it, but I'm not certain how much of it is good and how much not.
This is why I have had such a problem over the last
several years of writing this thing. I can't decide if I want to write a full-length novel, or cut it back and make a novella
of it. I change my mind frequently, sometimes weekly, sometimes more often than that.
I think I may be too close to
it to decide. So, I am going to let the book sit for at least a month, possibly more, then give it a light going over, just
to get to the 50000 word mark, as I am currently just shy of 49400, and then I am going to find some beta-readers, who will
have their work cut out for them.
In the meantime, I am thinking about a thriller idea I had some time ago called, tentatively,
The Pursuit of Kelly Clark. I may dust this idea off and finish the outline, then write it.
Of course, this
will probably all change next week.
