Been busy this last week, and will be next; paying the rent gets in the way of writing. But I’ve managed to write a draft of chapter 8 of Grendel.
The book is a rewrite, but chapter 8 is brand new.
Rewriting a book that you didn’t complete is like renovating an old, decrepit house. How much can you knock away and replace without losing the original essence of the place? How much do you want to keep?
How much to add?
But like I said before, I’m in love with April Speed, Grendel’s narrator, and I want to see her story through to the end.
