Roadblock – eliminated!

Posted by rwday on May 21, 2009

Revision is not working.  I think I need to take all the sections in my secondary point of view starting from where I lose my way and just rewrite. 

A fresh start is going to be much easier.  I’ve got a basic plot idea, will make use of the same characters and settings as the original version, but I’m sure it will also take new directions that I can’t even begin to predict.  What I had before wasn’t totally awful, but I feel, upon reflection, that it isn’t true to the character, and it just has to go.

I feel like I’ve overcome a real obstacle in this process and am excited about getting on with it, finally!

Sequel Update

Posted by rwday on May 11, 2009

Good news!  Steve Berman of Lethe Press has contracted for the sequel to Thaw.  As soon as I wrap up my last exam and finish off the semester, I’m going to go into revision overdrive, rewrite what needs to be rewritten, cut what needs to be cut, and get it sent off before I start summer semester on June 18.  Or soon thereafter – I might as well be realistic.

Anyway, for those who have been asking about the sequel, looks like it’s going to happen.
