Close To The Finish Line
Here's another picture from the Circle Bar B game preserve. Turtles, sunning on a log in the weeds.
As I near the finish line on this current work in progress, I feel a bit like the tortoise from the tortoise and the hare. I've taken more time on this story than any other I've written. I started the plotting for this story in October of last year. Five months ago. It seems like a long time ago.
At Christmas time, I stopped writing on this project and began another one for my publisher that ended up not working out. Since I'd taken a couple weeks off from this work in progress to work on something else, when it was time to get back to writing, instead of writing, I went to the beginning of the story and reworked, edited, and read through what I had to refresh myself and remember the characters and story line.
I finished the first draft the night before we flew out to Florida and when we got home, I jumped into the editing process. This week should see the editing done and the ms turned in.
Then I'll have to have a talk with my agent, look over my story ideas, and see where we want to go from here.
How about you? Are you close to finishing a project? Are you a turtle or a hare when it comes to writing?
