I’m a writin’ fool

So I’ve been working on my second book for a while now, the backwards story I’ve been babbling about off and on. Today I think I completed the second draft, which I believe to be phenomenally better than the first draft. The funny thing about this is that when I got back from the conference and the Lins, I had about 40 pages of the second draft written, and it’s completed length is now 163 pages. I wrote all of that in a little less than a month. Don’t ask me how that happened, because I honestly don’t know. God asked me to give up some things which has made my depression worse, but apparently worked wonders for my writing. In my life I have never written this much this quickly, and I don’t even think it’s crappy. Open to opinion, of course, but it’s not complete slag in any case. On the few occasions when I’ve had a week or so where I’ve written anything close to this much volume, I’ve been awake for several days at a time and been holed up in my room living on saltines and peanut butter. Now I’m participating in lots of other parts of life, am sleeping a normal schedule, and have cooked a good meal every night. All this to say, whoever’s praying for me, keep it up!

Also, if you would like to read the second draft of this book, please let me know. This is not a free reading though, I expect feedback. ‘it’s good’ or ‘it’s bad’ does not count. 🙂
