Talk about throwing out the baby with the bath--maybe I just did. I was up to 62,000 words plus in my latest novel, A Cold Copper Moon, and I didn't like what I was writing---so…I tossed over 30,000 words. They are out there somewhere! But they won't be back in this novel--Geez!
That's the latest in the adventures of this writer. If you have a similar experience--please share. Thanks.
It's bugging me. Always has. I asked Tim Dorsey if he works from an outline or just free-wheels it. He looked at me strangely and said something like, I have to work from an outline.
I never have. But lately I'm thinking I should give it a try--especially after throwing out over 30,000 words of my third novel--A Cold Copper Moon. So if any of you out there are writers, let me know what you think.

WHOA!!! Blood Moon Rising, Cooper's second in his trilogy, will be out at the end of March, maybe sooner! It's even better than the first ~ Cooper gets closer and closer to solving the mystery of his son's disappearance.
