UNBROKEN Update – Homestretch

Here’s how I’m finishing this book:

1. Tuning out distractions with earbuds playing the sounds of grackles layered over forest rain if I’m writing during daylight hours, spaceship sounds or celestial white noise if writing after sunset.

2. Wildly crossing through big chunks of hardcopy notes I’ve been carrying around with my laptop for six months.

3. Rereading a lot of UNQUIET.

4. Gushing new words with hardly any editing. Not my normal thing. It will mean lots of rewriting later on the last 25% of this book. That’s okay. I see the end. I need to run for it.

If my outline holds true, I’m four chapters from the end. Cover art is also in progress.

Here is a shot I took of a real, non-YouTube grackle hanging out in my yard.
