There are occasionally days where I don’t update because I’m too busy with other things to get much work done. And then there are those days where I’m so busy with my work that I don’t remember or don’t have time to write an entry. Yesterday was one such. Though it kept me up until after five in the morning, I’m happy to report that I’ve completed my second draft of the sequel to Mutt.
I sent it out to my beta readers, who should respond with all manner of flattery, or, more helpfully, criticism. The novel’s release date is somewhere between five and eight months away, so I’m glad for whatever feedback my trusted readers can give me. The time between writing a book and seeing how its audience responds can be painful. This evening, a couple good friends from Baltimore came to visit, so I used our outing as an excuse to do it bit more stickering.
