Yay, I finally get to use this photo of Scut Farkus. I haven’t been writing anything new, but I have been doing lots of editing. All the major inconsistencies are fixed, no visible plot holes left, lots of clunky writing declunkified, and the typos that are left are hiding in plain sight no matter how many times I read them. A few more passes and I’ll be ready to send “Kick 2” off to my beta readers. Oh yeah, I’m probably going to have to rename it from “Ride” to something else — there’s another novel called “Ride” and I’d rather not confuse things if I don’t have to. Also, I like to avoid the image of being a claim jumper.

John, it’s good to hear that you’ve made so much progress declunkifying the first draft. Revision is hard work, but in some ways I prefer it to writing the first draft, which at least for me is always feels like jumping out of an airplane with only an imaginary parachute.
Very good imagery, totally stealing it when you’re not looking 🙂
