Careful What You Wish For

Back to work on the New One on this glorious May 5th (which is, incidentally, the day the book opens and the main character’s birthday).

Scott suggested I employ more descriptive and explanatory narration. My tendency is to overdo this sort of thing, so I held myself back in previous drafts. It’ll be fun to go through and add more authorial commentary. There’s a lot of subtle metaphor in this manuscript- maybe too subtle. It’s time to go back and bring some of these threads to the surface. Vonnegut can really expose his themes without it seeming forced or heavy-handed, so I’ll try to follow his example.

It’s good to be back.
