There is still, always, that anxiety that hits when you put a passage of writing in front of a stranger for the first time and wonder if they’ll enjoy it or absolutely pan it. I wonder if other writers experience the same feeling.
The last bits of polish are going into the final chapter of Feathers Fall. It’s hard to write. Then it’s off (hopefully) to get some solid feedback from those willing to read it. A scary moment, the first eyes on that aren’t mine. I wonder how it will go. I wonder how it will go down.
Within 10 pages of the end of the first pass of Feathers Fall. Actually trying to stretch the manuscript (sensibly) out a little bit, adding a bit more description around the place. Hopefully I can make it to full novel length.
Now for the final hurdle, physical print!
In between all this exciting having published Crimson, I still need to make sure I keep the editing of Feathers Fall on track. Well, at least I need to do more than I have doing lately.
