I’m close, and I’m a little ahead of schedule, but I feel like I’m cheating a bit.
I started one novel, got about 20,000 words in, and realized it want going to work. I’ll be able to salvage some of it, but not much.
The rest han been a second book that I truly believe will capture what I love about The Manticore and the Woodcutter’s Daughter. I’m quite excited and confident about it, but I don’t want to jinx it by taking to much about it now.
