Heart of Darkness – Second draft phase

It’s been a while since I had a chance to update my blog. Things have been very busy recently both at work and at home / writing. I didn’t have the time last weekend to update my blog, but I did manage to post a chapter of my free vampire romance novel, Of Blood and Snow. This week the opposite is true. I have time to update my blog, but I don’t have time to post a chapter of OBAS. Sorry to everyone who’s waiting on a chapter. I’ll try to get a couple up next weekend to make up for it!

I’ve been working my backside off recently. I have finished the second draft on Ascension and I’ve printed out a copy of it via Lulu to take with my on my impending holiday (ash clouds and BA strikes willing), along with my copy of Forbidden Blood. I have a lot of flights coming up on this holiday so there’ll be plenty of time for me to get bored of the in-flight entertainment and read instead.

I’m currently going through the second draft of Heart of Darkness. I’ve done my on-paper read through of it last weekend and have just finished adding in all the notes and changes into the word document. I was editing it during the week though, as I managed to get the first 80 pages of notes and things into the word document fairly early in the week, so I could start on the major edit in the word doc. I finished getting the notes and things in today whilst watching the BBC adaptation of North & South (Elizabeth Gaskell’s novel, which I adore). It’s left me smiling ear-to-ear. I don’t mind too much that they changed the ending. It irked me at first but now I can accept it. It’s the sort of thing that has to happen when a book makes the transition to screen. There’s always cuts and changes.

I think I can probably get the second draft of Heart of Darkness finished in the next two weeks. It’ll be a push when I’m so busy at work too, but I’ll give it my best.

I’m off out soon so I’d better dash. Will do a better update next weekend and post a chapter of Of Blood & Snow.
