Yes, the book was “done” last Friday.
And yes, I’ve said it before: no art is ever finished, but at some point you have to be done.
Unless you’ve built a car with no brakes or a chair without legs.
My omission was less obvious, but still critical. I always run my manuscripts through a marvelous tool called AutoCrit before throwing them over the transom to Tom’s office.
And I’d forgotten that.
There’s information in today’s Someday Box post about what AutoCrit does, if you’d like to read it.
Otherwise, know that finally, after more than 3 years (the first words were written April 12th, 2012) you’ll finally get to meet Jesse Donovan, one of the first fictional characters I ever created.
I like him. I think you will, too.
