Novel Update: 10/1/2017

 

Hello everyone,

Just a quick update.

I scrapped my pages. All of them. It’s hard to admit this, but the quality just wasn’t good enough. I think I was really impatient on getting something out there, too focused on the result, that I just completely rushed the process. In the words of Toy Story 2, “You can’t rush art.”

I also psyched myself out of it in a way. I don’t want to get too into it, but for a number of reasons, somewhere along the line I got convinced that this project wouldn’t be very successful.

So where am I now?

I’m beginning again. It can be frustrating, but setbacks are a normal part of the game. Just need to have faith that things will work out in time.

I just finished Chapter 1 and so far it’s going really well. Like most writers, I never really consider anything “done” but I do know when I’m “close enough” and these pages are right there. On to Chapter 2 with this new direction.

For anyone who has been waiting for this novel, sad news, but I’ve pushed the release date back yet again. At the pace I’m going, I’m thinking I’ll be finished somewhere around Winter 2018. Sorry for the wait!

-Peter
