I’ve completed draft four of The Midwife’s Confession (well except for the epilogue), so it’s time to see how it looks on Wordle! Wordle helps me see what words I’ve overused. Of course the character names (and there are a lot of them!) are all over the place. Noelle, front and center, is the midwife. I can see that I’ve overused “just” which is a typical problem of mine. Also “like”. I’ll look for those words as I work on the final draft, but since the book is entirely first person . . . well, people say “just” and “like” a lot.
Tonight I’ll work on the epilogue and one chapter in the middle that’s been driving me bonkers. Tomorrow I start the read-aloud, which will help me catch any remaining problems, I hope. And then I’ll be done!
The Lies We Told is available for preorder now. And watch for my online signing the first week in June!
