During the writing of Out of Darkness and the currently (cleverly) named ‘Book 2’, I’ve learned a couple things.
The first of these is: Never, ever claim you are close to done. (Seriously, don’t do it.)
If you read back (you probably shouldn’t) there are several posts of me claiming to be almost done, nearly done, one step away from done, and lastly, dangerously close to done. Guess how many of those have been right so far. (Actually, don’t guess.)
This post is not going to say how close to done I am, dangerously or otherwise, because we know how that will end. Instead, it’s just an update.
Out of Darkness has been out to an editor and I’ve cleaned up, clarified, added, and deleted most of the things they mentioned. I’m going to send it back to them in a few days, and then they’ll send it back. Once that is done, maybe I’ll have another update that’s a little more exciting.
The second thing I’ve learned: I’m not good at thinking up multiple items for entries titled “A Couple Things I’ve learned.”
