[writing] Madness of Flowers progress

Madness of Flowers is out the door, three days late under a publisher-approved deadline extension. It landed at 143,300 words. That's a cut from 194,600, of 51,300 words. I think the book is much stronger for the process. I'll see it again some time this summer on copy edit.

Now you know why I've been so quiet on this blog lately. Besides the computer crash, I mean. (And thanks to my anal back up process, work on the novel didn't skip a beat with the crash, other than time lost to dealing directly with the issue.)

I need to do some writing-related housekeeping (and some literal housekeeping), fix "The Baby Killers", take a deep breath, then on to Green.

So far nothing's gone sproing in my head. And I am having fun.

Busy, me?
