Yesterday, I finished the last missing scene! I'm now left with one small to-do item, which I expect to get done today or tomorrow, and I will officially be done with the second draft of the book. That doesn't necessarily make it ready for publishing, but it is a big step forward for me and it feels really good to have gotten this far.
My wife, the geekwif, will be the first to read this draft. She's my "alpha tester", and it will be her job to help me find significant problems with the story, the characters, and anything else. And once she has read the story and completed her review, I'll do another (hopefully quick) round of revisions, and then it will be time to release the story to a group of beta testers.
Stay tuned for more updates!
