So, did a read through of the first half of TY last week. Between Wednesday and Monday, I blew through 8k in revisions (everything but one tiny thing on my To Do list). Yesterday I did a fresh read through of the revised version (and caught a crapton of timeline issues and typos due to my jumping bean cursor). And I figured out some second half stuff to do with my shero’s motivation for some stuff that was kind of weak. And how to weave in the set up for another couple whose second chance romance story will come later.
OMG, I HEART THIS BOOK SO HARD.
I’m feeling all warm and fuzzy about it. This is a very unusual place to be when in the midst of the Dreaded Valley of the Shadow of the Middle.
I am OFFICIALLY IN THE SECOND HALF (Praise your favorite deity!).
If you love the book, that means the readers will, too!
So you’ve successfully slogged through the Great Tar Pit that is the Middle of the Book–Good for you! And HAIL CTHULHU!! (Or Mighty Thor, depending on your tastes.)
Well there’s still the second half of the middle, but I don’t think it’s going to give me near the problems. Act 2 (of 4) is always my kryptonite.
