It’s the start of summer (well, a teacher’s summer) and I was hoping at this point to have finished revising Can Stuart Henry Zhang Save the World? But no. I am far from it. And now that it’s summer, I’m going to take a break from that to (hopefully) finish the draft of Love is not free. The price is 99 cents. I think I’m about half way through, and so it’s possible. However, I also thought that CSHZSTW? (that really looks confusing… I think it might just be better to write the entire title) would be finished in 2012… and then by the summer of 2013… and now sometime in 2014, probably. But, like I wrote in an earlier post, there is no need to rush this. The world is not in urgent need of another choose-your-own-adventure ebook.
Reading through what I’d written of Love is not free… last autumn, I’m generally pleased, which means I feel confident the draft will be completed. That shouldn’t be nearly as time consuming to revise as a choose-your-own-adventure, as so I still hope, although it’s faint hope, that it can be ready by the end of the year. I just know how many eager fans there are hoping to have it for the Christmas holidays.
That last sentence was meant to have a sarcastic ring to it.
Anyhow, it’s summer, and I’m looking forward to writing something that doesn’t involve the protagonist getting mauled and torn limb-from-limb every few pages. That sort of stuff is for the gloomy, winter months.
Also, I was interviewed by a young lady from a local university press a week or so ago and it should be online soon. I’ll have the link when it’s ready…
