The second rewrite of The Gnostic is going great, and I hope to be done by the end of the year. The first rewrite was really a complete top to bottom writing of a second book using the same characters, overall plot, and reworked scenes. I guess in that sense I have written two novels already. The first draft was terrible, and will never see the light of day, though. Really terrible. At any rate, rewriting now is more like molding clay than engineering a complete building. I’m just reworking existing material to make it flow, read better, and include more detail.
I’m also making Trudy crazier.
