I’m a month and a half to my deadline, so things are a little frantic here! I thought I’d share with you where I’m at in the process. Anyone who’s followed my blog knows that I’m not one of those “sit down and write the book from start to finish” kind of writers. How I wish I were, but alas, my brain doesn’t work that way. So as I write, I keep a list going of things I need to “plant.” For example, as I write chapter twelve, I may decide that my character needs to have a conversation with her mother, but I’ve never mentioned her mother up till then, so I make myself a note to go back and plant her mother’s existence in an earlier chapter. By the time I finished the first draft, I had zillions of sloppily written “plant” notes all over the place, so on June 4 (see the date on the notepad) I sat down to organize them. And here is the result! Needless to say, I have enough work to keep me very busy from now till deadline, so I’m going to get off the blog and get to it.
