The Unfinished House by Morgan Mandel
I ask that question to myself often as I walk past with my dog, Rascal. I guess no one knows the answer, except the owners, or maybe they don't even know it.
I started my thriller, Forever Young, at least three years ago, maybe more. I worked on it diligently for a while, then put it aside to get Girl of My Dreams and Killer Career published.
I've picked up writing Forever Young again, but have decided to do some extensive remodeling (editing) involving removing many characters and saving them for a later book. I know by doing this, even though it's taking me longer, Forever Young should be much stronger as a result. Still, when I look at what still needs to be done, I often ask myself Will this book every get finished?
What about you? Do you have a book like that unfinished house, that never gets done?
