Writing was basically at a stand still... Now I have come back full force. Been working on Pirates over the last few days, and been making nice progress. There are a whole lot of changes, but I have found bits of dialogue and paragraphs that I just cannot part with.
The book is completely different to what I first expected, but I can see where a lot of the changes will go, and I think that the story will be stronger over all. :)
So far I've done first read through edits to about 300 pages of 490. Not far to go, then I can start on second draft. Then I can finally finish Blood Donor. Which is probably one of my most promising pieces of work so far.
