Thanks Liz. Finished a second draft a couple of weeks ago, and have been in agonies trying to get going on the next, hopefully final, version. Maybe better to pick up one of the other projects that were set aside for this one, and let it simmer for awhile.

It's always a good idea to step away from a MS for 3-4 weeks before rewriting/editing as a final draft. You will do better starting your next project...

Hi everyone,

I'm trying to make it through the rewrites of my first novel. I keep wanting to move to another one. I don't think that's a good idea. I just want to complete the final draft of One Death at a Time.

Keep writing. :)

Wow, what a week it's been!! THE MEMORY BOX Kindle edition was downloaded 27,452 times in 3 days! This post is a thank you note which recognizes the real reason for that success:

I've written several nonfiction books and am now at work on a novel. This group has great advice, so am hoping you can help me: how do you mix research and writing? I was on a roll writing, realized I needed to do some research, and then - the research goes on and on, and the writing has now stalled. When do you stop researching and start writing? Do you finish all your research first, or do you do research on and off throughout the process of the first draft? OR do you write the first draft all in one go, then do the research to fill in the missing pieces? Thanks for any and all advice!

FREE Kindle download of THE MEMORY BOX a marriage thriller, today through Thursday! You know you love free stuff! Read this “unputdownable” “thrill ride” of a “page turner” hailed as the “best book of the summer” and a “great read for fans of Gone Girl” (I mean, that’s what I’m hearing…) please consider leaving a review on Amazon and/or Goodreads. That would make my day!

Hello Ladies. Anyone here have a moment (or a few, actually) to spare? I am looking some feedback on the 10th chapter of my YA Silent Voices. It is written from a omniscient third-person narrative, focusing on one or two of the for MCs feelings (or silenced voices) in each chapter.

Silent Voices: Flowers and Flirts

I have taken forever to actually get down to writing this chapter (January blues turning to March blues!)

It would be very kind of you to give me any positive, negative or constructive feedback you may be willing to share. Thank you very much in advance! :)

Not long to go before I publish my first novel, The Lamb. Please check out my Kickstarter project or my website. I'd love to hear any feedback the group has to offer.
