I have to admit that my writing has slowed as my quarentine attitude makes everything more appealing than writing.
Even so, my current book is past 17,000 words. This is just the rough draft. Editing always adds many words.
How is everyone? Okay, I hope. Wear a mask in public to be as safe as possible.
Last Wednesday or Thursday, I discovered a short file of the same new book that I am currently writing. I quickly read it over and discovered the story lines diverged.
I nearly just plain deleted nearly six hundred words. Instead, I put it away and took two days to visit a person similar to one of the characters.
Advice: Don’t delete your work.
After returning home, four hours of smoke in my eyes and throat, I rested. Finally, I read the old file. Deleted on paragraph, and merged the other into the beginning as a preface.
If it doesn’t work, I can still select and delete.
Newest book is progressing slowly while I prepare for fall. I have re-editted the first ten thousand words and passed twelve thousand.
I have introduced two new killers who are of Bill’s age. They have just met.
More later on Stay safe.
