I mentioned awhile back that I wanted to write original material during the early day and work on rewriting in the latter part of the day.
I couldn't do it. I can just do one thing at a time, I guess. Either write a first draft, or do rewriting, but not both.
Anyway, for the next three days I have no choice. I've arranged for Lara to take a look at the final draft of Faerylander on the 10th of May. But Linda has already gone through it, and pointed out a bunch of inconsistencies that I'd like to fix first. And Bren has gone through the beginning chapters and pretty much convinced me I need to completely rework the first two chapters -- again for the umpteenth time.
So I have to spend the next three nights totally focused on Faerylander. I have no choice if I'm going to slot this into Lara's available time. With all my backlog I can't afford to let any time pass without something for her to work on.
This is the final draft of Faerylander, no matter what. (Perhaps a final clean edit after this.) I just can't keep working on Faerylander forever. I've got to pick a moment when I think it's finished.
I'm almost there, and if I can fix the first two chapters and the inconsistencies, I think the book is about as good as I can make it.
