My current work-in-progress is a contemporary novel inspired by Gothic literature. It’s about an innocent young woman trying to survive in a world filled with selfish and unpleasant people, a society in obvious decline, and expectations that go against the vision she has for herself.
Lacking a title I’m happy with, I’m referring to it as Project Deadmall for now. The second draft is currently underway. I’ve made a copy of the first draft, written between December 2019 and February 2020, in Scrivener. Now I’m breaking it down into chapters, tracking plot points and character arcs, and ensuring that it all makes sense. Next come intensive rewrites.
