Honestly, I’m having troubling viewing this novel impartially. Maybe I shouldn’t be impartial. Maybe I should be very partial and go back to my early draft where everything, good and bad, came from the heart and not from stuff I’ve been absorbing from books and writing classes over the past year.
I have learned a lot on my way to get my evil million words out. I think I’m a better writer now than I was two or three years ago. Not perfect, not by a long shot, but better. Oy. I don’t know. Maybe I should let this book sit a while after I finish this revision.
