rites of passage, finally finished, i can send it complete to my extrodiary editor for a tidy up. i will read it aloud soon, make necessary changes, do what i can but then it's time to let it go and put it out. finally, it's been a long time coming. i don't know if it's good or not, do i care. not really, it was a story that needed to be completed and my job is nearly done. just needs a superficial tidy up i guess.
now i need to focus upon the same tiding up with manifesto the other novel. it's lacking in parts but i have pushed ahead and may need a second opinion and some advice on what works and what does not.
it's my most recent work and may require distance and perspective before i understand it as finished.
