Done!* I “finished” writing my book PARKLAND today.
Asterisk and quotes, because that’s only the first draft. I sent it to my editor in chunks, and she had her finger poised and hit send on the edits as soon as I did.
Those are her overview comments to the right. SO much to do so fast now. Also, a writer’s most painful moment, swallowing all the cuts. Those are always hard to take—but vital to make it better. No time to grieve them, have to keep moving on rewrites. This is breakneck pace to get it out Feb 12.
Hopefully, I’ll head out to Sag Harbor to do some of the rewrites. And I’m going to corgi-nap my little buddy on the way!
