it’s a draft!

May 1, 2017

It’s a draft! The rough draft of Bannerless #2 is off to a first reader. I’m already making notes for the next revision, so it’s not technically finished yet. But it’s a coherent entity now, which is a big step.

This is one where I changed a bunch of names after I had finished writing. And it’s weird, because I think I knew the whole time the names weren’t working, but I didn’t want to take the time to think of new ones. Once it was finished, I could. So I changed them. (Thank goodness for search and replace.)

Like Bannerless, this is a murder mystery. Initially, I named the murder victim Hope. This led to a book full of phrases like “Hope is dead.” “Who killed Hope?” “What happened to Hope?” “Hope is gone.” And so on. I’m sure it has nothing to do with recent current events. At any rate, that name absolutely had to change.
