I’m so happy to report that editing of My Last Days is happening super quickly lately. Each night I sit down and edit, I churn through 6 to 8 chapters.
The book, you see, is broken down into sections, months, really. Since we’re living the story of Andy’s life (that’s his name, in case you missed it), we follow him through-out the months.
Each month is broken down into a handful of chapters – some as little as 4 or 5, some as many as 10.
It’s a unique approach to telling the story to help you understand what time of year it is, how much time has passed, etc., without you having to guess.
As of last night, I have just the last three months left to edit, each of which has about 6 or 7 chapters.
I think I’ll be done with editing the final draft by the end of September, then ask some kind souls to give it a read and let me know what they think. While I like the story I’ve written (especially some parts), I’m not sure I love it. At least not just yet.
If you’re interested in reading it and giving me your feedback, get in touch with me on Twitter at @jandreauwrites!
