I had yet another successful interview today with another East Coast school. No word yet on whether they want to talk to me in person or not, but I feel like I did as best as I possibly could have, so no regrets, which is always the important thing in my book. Other than that, today’s been a pretty busy day. The conference just ran in the morning, so my afternoon was filled with work at the library followed by scheduling my plane trips for the upcoming interviews. I think by the time all these are over, I’m really going to need a break. Not that I’m complaining, but there you have it.
I have about 35 pages left of Lesana to rewrite, and then I’ll be ready to start polishing. Yesterday I fixed another big problem with the book, which gives me a very satisfying feeling. I know that this second draft still has issues. But they’re much smaller scale issues–issues that take little brainstorming and imagination to fix. If this were a sculpture, the basic form is there, and now I’ll just have to chisel and polish. It’s shaping up to be a good book.
