I can’t seem to keep up anymore. Been working offline for the most part, which is a good thing for the book. And speaking about my book, I’ve changed direction a bit.
In the course of preparing my pitch materials, I had an epiphany about the book that is taking it in an exciting direction. While I feel the book is good enough to pitch right now, following this new direction will make it an even better book, and I owe it to myself to give it a shot. So, I won’t be pitching to agents next weekend after all.
There is a writing book involved that helped with with my epiphany: Story Engineering, by Larry Brooks. I’ve seen him present a number of times. He’s down to earth, engaging, and his ideas are solid.
So, wish me luck as I weave my words into a different pattern. I can hardly wait to see the result!
