Time for a monthly update on how I’m doing with my WIP, Against All Odds, Book 3 of the Crossroads trilogy.
Based on a true story, the extraordinary saga of hardship, conflict, family, and survival…
A quick summary:
A million years of evolution made Xhosa tough but tough enough for this?
Here’s what I have done the past month:
- Not much. I’m still editing. I needed a break from Autocrit so switched to reading through the novel for pacing, wording, and authenticity. As I read, I keep three books open on my desktop (my third screen):
When I get stuck on a description that doesn’t sound detailed enough or have too many people nodding or scowling, these are the books I turn to. For me, this works really well.
- I started gathering files and pictures for my trailer but still haven’t ordered my cover. I’ll know when I’m ready.
That’s it! How are you doing on your latest WIP? I’d love to hear!
