I Done Did A Few Things

Busy week...

I survived the flu.

I went page by page, scene by scene, and yanked all the telling from the first 50 pages of The End of Normal. It now has more of my main character and less unnecessary info dump. It is tighter and faster paced. Go me.

Also, bought and finished The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan.
It is a haunting and heartbreaking and horrible tale mixed with longing and love and determination...and zombies. The MC, Mary, is strong and fragile at the same time. I really like Carrie Ryan's writing voice - her style is clean and precise and poetic.
