Hello to people with too much time on their hands and other random folks.
While scouring the internet for advice on finding a literary agent and becoming published, I’ve heard it might be a good idea to establish some sort of social media presence on twitter, facebook, blogs, and the like even before securing an agent. So, here I am.
I’m working on draft six of my novel right now at a Barnes and Noble. My novel currently weighs in at 75,343 words; it’s been fluctuating around 80,000 words since I finished draft one however many months ago. To start draft six, I’m ripping apart chapter one and pasting it back together to try to make the book more compelling from the get-go.
On this edit run, I also plan to make the two protagonists’ story arcs more cohesive. After some feedback from a fellow writer who read over my agent query, I did some brainstorming and came up with a few things to add to the plot that will, hopefully, tie the protagonists closer together.
