Victory! Well Almost.

Okay, I have been a bad girl.  I admit it.  I haven't blogged in over a month, but I have a completed first draft to show for it, so you will forgive me right?  Does that mean my book is finished and ready to go to an editor?  I wish.  I have just over seventy thousand words complete and yet I feel like I only have the skeleton of the finished product.  I have just finished reading Story by Robert McKee and I am reading the Story Grid by Shawn Coyne now and taking notes.  As soon as I'm finished reading Story Grid, I am going to story grid Water For Elephants because I feel like it is in the same genre as what I am trying to write.  I think that I should learn enough from that to start putting the story grid on my on own first draft to figure out which parts are working and which parts I need to throw out.  I will update you next week on how my story grid works out on Water For Elephants.  Until then, if you haven't checked out Shawn Coyne's podcast, I highly recommend it.
