Wednesday Wrap-Up: 6/21/17
Bad Guy Beatdown Round 2 has started and next week we'll see who comes out on top. I'm having a lot of fun posting this tournament and watching a lot of the cartoons that I haven't see in decades, if at all. But the big thing is that I've finally started working again on OSE 2. Nothing huge so far, but I'm working on the first chapter again after it got a sound thrashing in my critique group. It's a little smoother now, I think and as soon as I'm done, I'll be submitting to the group again.
I'm in the process of reading the first book in my finisher critique group as well. It's a good story so far and I'm looking forward to reading the rest of it. It's a much different task than reading a chapter each a month from the writers in my main critique group. While I'm used to commenting on smaller things like grammar changes to make and questions about specific details, this group wants a focus on the big things like theme and pacing while ignoring the small stuff. I'm still trying to wrap my mind around it. I'm hoping to do one or two last passes through OSE 1 before I submit it, but I've got a few months before my novel comes up. Hopefully after that I can work on the cover as well and get this book out on Amazon and wherever else.
