Writing the Book You Want to Read.

Dead Beat has started dotting the 'i's and cross the 't's. It is time to put this rewrite aside (See Dead Beat Rewrites His Novel) and to contemplate. See if something more needs to be done.

All in all he is pleased with what he has so far.

Hard to know when you set out. You have a feel for the type of novel you want to write (in this case tender and tragic - set in a frozen landscape which threatens to dissolve) - all very well but can the writing match the vision? Can the plot be sustained? Will the characters hold up?

You write the book you think you want to read.

I think I would want to read this one. Time will tell.
