The Woodsman – A quick update

It’s been a little while since I posted on this.

I’m still finishing off the structural rewrite. There was not much that could be salvaged from the end other than the very loose skeleton of the story and so it’s taking longer than expected, despite me working on it every day. I’ve also had to add in some crucial extra scenes in order to pace the action better. It’s tricky work but I’m getting there – chapter twenty is nearly in the bag.

It remains to be seen whether it will be of commercial length or indeed more importantly worth.

Once that’s done it’s going in a virtual draw for a couple of weeks while I write some shorter material for the Arvon course I’m attending and then it’s back to it. I have to finish by August as I have the first draft of my second novel, Forever, sitting in a draw demanding to be turned into a second draft.

That’s where I am at the moment.
