Notes from a Drama Queen

The last days of Reno

Wednesday, October 03, 2007

So actually it was only 10 days. 13 pages on Monday, 7 lousy ones on Tuesday that I had to keep rewriting, and then an utterly fabulous 33 today. The draft is done, and it's a great, marvelous, brilliant, flawed, shaggy mess which I will now proceed to whip into shape. It's a little short, but like Elmore Leonard I try to leave out the stuff people skip. I should know how good it is by Friday, when I will have printed it up and mashed it into shape.

But in the meantime, fireworks and champagne and happy music very very loud on the stereo. I came, I saw, I kicked its ass!

So excited there are going to be more Ice series books! Hang in there. I have read all the Ice Books and all the other books of your's that I could get my hands on and I have enjoyed them all. I'm supper picky about books. If it doesn't grab me right away, or if it's to gaggy with mush I pass. Yours are right up my ally.
