When is a novel like a galley (kitchen) remodel?
This is an interactive site- Bloggers are asked to contribute their ideas in the comments.
Will win an AUTOGRAPHED copy of LOTTERY!!!
Revisions, revisions, editing, more revisions. Tinker.
Spell check again.
Chapter heading reformat.
I'll get back to this later...
I wrote a guest blog about book clubs for BOOK REPORTER. If you don't know about this site you should. They have READING GROUP GUIDES and nifty SUMMER BEACH BAG OF BOOKS CONTESTS where you can win your own special copy of Lottery and other cool stuff.
I have no idea when my blog will be posted but stay tuned and I'll tell you. Or you can peruse bookreporter.com everyday (which is fun too).
It's anticlimactic I know but LOTTERY was selected as a semi-finalist for THE VCU CABELL FIRST NOVELIST AWARD
Check out who else was on the list. I'll commiserate with Junot. He and I are LIKE THAT. *hooks fingers together*
Of course he can go home and look at is Pulitzer Prize.
I can go home and stare at my unfinished kitchen.
Back to revisions.
Sometimes ya just gotta get done. Tinkering be damned. Forge ahead full speed. Take no prisoners.
As I said to my first mate and co-habitator Gordon this past year, "So when is our new galley going to be done?"
"I don't know dear. When is your second book going to be finished?"
Or is it Touché?
