After an intensely paced final inning, today I officially completed the first draft of The Blue Zone.
This book has been three years in the making, from its humble whimsical beginnings on Three Knaves, transforming under the eyes of writing peers in a graduate studies program, to being the only solace I had in a hellish year.
And the best part of it is I have already started the outline for book two.
For now, I'm giving the book some space, letting it breath like a glass of wine. I need to come back to it with some fresh perspective and rested eyes.
I'm looking to tackle it sometime in the next week or two, and begin the grueling process of editing.
And then I'll need readers....
