I'm working heavily on two projects right now, gearing up for the SCBWI-L.A. Working Writer's Retreat.
Yesterday, I spent many hours taking two episodic manuscripts and squishing them together to create a complete story. It's getting there.
The style of each manuscript is different
The focus on each manuscript is different
And yet they do share a strong common bond. Shoving two into one is forcing me to flesh them both out to smooth the transition. Looks like they'll actually reach a respectable book length as a single entity.
On the MG side, I'm plowing through a long rewrite. More than halfway through the manuscript, but the second half requires more work.
Feeling productive this week and that feels really good.
