I'll be bahk

Finished the rough draft of DG3 yesterday. This book, I swear, almost killed me because I’ve never, ever thrown away so many pages. I must have gutted this thing three or four times, once when it was within a few chapters of being done.

Now I have to read it, address the remaining sticky notes and polish it up.

Oh, and run spellcheck. FYI, when your editor has to mark typos even the worst spellcheck program would have caught, it can make her cranky.


Then a synopsis. I have no freakin’ clue how I’m going to synopsize this story. An den there was nookie, an den they blew some shit up, an den they lived happily ever after.

Oh! And a title. For months I’ve been trying to come up with a title, and no dice. Unfortunately, I’ve been told DG3 isn’t going to work, so…I’m open to suggestions.

Anyway, I’ve got my printed pages and my red pen, so off to work I go!

    :clap: on completing. you’re the bomb.

    I’d so be up for a title brainstorming session. Gimme a shout and prepared with a real “an den” outline of what happened. I’ve already got a few ideas. :boogie:

    OMG, OMG, OMG!!! DG3 is done??? :cheer: :cheer: :cheer: Tell Angie to put up a prebuy link :nod: (yeah, I know it hasn’t gone through editing and it doesn’t have a title, but I really don’t care, I will buy it right now :thumb: ).

    Give me a blurb and I can help with a title if you’d like.
