The first draft of Cannibal Hearts is done. I am playing around with an epilogue, which I may or may not include. The ending I have is pretty brutal, emotionally, and I feel a need to soften the blow a little, add a scene that takes place a couple of months later. I’ll see.
I’m tired. Damn, I’m tired. This book has been rough on me, there’s a lot of raw nerves in here. In fact, this draft is nowhere near as edgy as it first came out–I revise as I write, and I kept going back and softening things a bit.
But I think it’s a good bit of work. I’m going to see how the epilogue goes, and then I’m going to put it away for a while, pick it up and read it over when I have had a chance to rest and recharge a while.
Next I think I’m going to write The Happy Fluffy Bunnies To Whom Nothing Bad Ever Happened.
