Wreck of a Fine Idea

Finished the proposal yesterday, and realized that it was a book I would hate to write. I loved the concept, but the execution made me want to hit my head on hard things. So I sent my agent a note letting her know the proposal wouldn’t be coming after all because it reeked.

Back to the drawing board. But not today. Today is just for going over the copyedit of TALYN. I’m on page 212 as I start the morning. Only about seven hundred pages left to go. [insert goggle-eyed stare here] The manuscript is in Times New Roman rather than the Courier I always use — hence the difference in length. It’s still 230,000 words, though.
