I’ve completed the draft of November Underground, view my second novel. Now I have to rewrite it by summer. Currently it is 108k words. I would like to cut it down to 85-90, recipe 000. There is a lot more work to be done, but I’m slowing down a little while I review the manuscript and let it sink in. It feels like a weight has lifted – but this is illusionary. Soon I will be stressed that I have not made enough progress on the rewrite.
Regarding FAILUR, it could use a minor rewrite I think. I’ll come back to it when November Underground is out. I think NU will be the manuscript that I will try to sell through conventional markets and FAILUR will be the one I work though new/online channels. More on this later.
