Making hard work of the second draft of Waking up Jack Thunder. I've rewritten much of the first chapter - now a ten page prologue - which, I hope, makes for a better introduction. I'll find out if I managed it, at the Write Stuff conference (in Allentown, PA), at the end of next month. I booked myself in for a workshop with Karen Blomain, where, along with a bunch of other willing victims, we'll dissect the opening ten pages of everyone's novels in the hope of improving them. Advanced submission of said pages is required by tomorrow.
Once I send that in, I need to start proofreading another book for my friend dqg_neal at Dark Quest. He'll be pleased to hear that I'm running ahead of schedule. After that, I have to get stuck in to our tax returns . Always a fun experience.
