BC3’s First Draft Is Complete

Ever since I took that sharp left turn at Albuquerque and got off my outline I’ve been on a roll. I found the story and tore through the second half of the book. I did circle back to the original outline for the last couple of wrap-up chapters and I’ll be interested to see if that material survives the edits. I suspect that I am going to completely rewrite the beginning, which will mean I completely rewrite the end, but you know, details details. Like all first drafts, it kinda sucks. But the real magic is always in the rewrites. Right now I am happy and I’ll take a few hours, maybe even a few days, to savor the accomplishment. And then the real work begins!
