Tale of the Cattail Forest is such a meaningful book to me. A lot comes from the fact that it is my first WIP. The characters and the world are incredible. Now, I have an actual update. It has been known for some time that I was one my 5th draft.
Well, I had to be on a writing hiatus for some time. Part of that time was spent developing the Greatest Discovery characters, in particular Aurora and Jasmine. I was only on writing hiatus to wait on edits. Now, I am pleased to say those edits were recently given that. Now, I am pleased to say I am on my 6th draft. This is my hardest draft yet—I already took care of some of the grammar and tense situations that were noticed.
But, there is a moment that is still a struggle. I am not saying that what it is- don’t want to say spoilers. At least, it improved as time went on.
My 6th draft is not just going to consist of some of those rewrites. I think it will also include working on the map. One of the tricks is knowing when to put the illustrations. Now the book now has the summary blurb- it is the back of the book after all.
