Today, I finished the first draft of CLODDY with about 70,000 words written. This is the length I had envisioned since the beginning of this book project. I must say it is a rough draft as I have much left to do. However, it feels good to have the basic structure of the story down on paper.
I have more additions and some deletions to make. I have to complete the many endnotes used in telling the story. Rewriting and more rewriting. Copy editing and story editing – along with a myriad of other details to complete the work.
I intend to self-publish for a variety of reasons including having creative control and the ability to release the book at an optimal time – which I plan to do in the fall.
I have so many to thank in this journey. Thank you for your encouragement and your interest!
