Sliding into home!

SAFE to say I just finished the first draft of my baseball book, PLUNKED. My final writing day was my biggest: 2,007 words, all in order. I’d say it feels good to finish strong, but heck, it just feels good to finish. I have a solid week of freelancing ahead, but I am really looking forward to editing this one after that.

I overshot my target word count by 5K, but I am willing to sacrifice all of those words, and countless baserunners, in the name of ruthless editing. I feel like I have something really amazing here, and I’m excited to show it to a few people, but first I need to clean it up, tie its shoes, and make it presentable. And I will, but for now, the book is written, the file is backed up, there’s a smile on my face, and that other sport on TV.

    Good job brother. As always, proud as all hell, and usually I’m not about leaving sentiment behind on your blog. Sediment, yes, but not sentiment.

    Thank you, sir! As for the sediment, your comments do tend to be a little gritty, but there’s nothing wrong with a change of pace.
