Feb. 26, 2017. [cont'd from Feb 2, 2017] Revised title. Revised cover. Finished what I'm calling Draft 3.0, in under 29,000 words -- novella length. Now I'm ready for beta readers, people I can trust to point out flaws and muddled parts without tearing down me down. You know who you are. Some of my readers are listeners, so I have started the process of recording the chapters and will post them on Soundcloud. The project is short enough that this is not a major undertaking. Recording serves a double purpose, really. In addition to increasing accessibility for busy beta readers, reading aloud and then having to listen to myself is a good way to reveal, to my own ear, where my "flow" runs dry.
This is happening.
