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!
Congrats Kim! We are all anxiously waiting for the final copy!!
Yippee! Way to go!
