Today is a monumental and exhausting day for me, and one that I have been working towards since late last year.
My first draft of Lockwood Tower is complete!
For me it is a great moment to celebrate, even though there is still a lot of revision to do. But, this manuscript is my longest to date, which is suitable for an epic fantasy. I absolutely promise that I did not add padding (one of my least favorite things in modern fantasy) though I recognize that this is all a matter of opinion.
The second draft will be tighter in the right chapters and more eloquent in others. There is a lot to learn on this book, and it’s exciting to have it all in one place to be judged as a whole organism.
More updates to come, including some awesome news about my cover. But, for now, there is a milestone met for me.
Happy Wednesday to you!
