Still working, slowly but surely. When I first started this project, I didn't think it'd take anywhere near this long.
And it wouldn't have, if I made the same amount of time to work on the book each day. Real life tends to get in the way.

What I'm working on now is going back through and filling in detail where needed. Most writing sites tend to tell you to write one big draft, then edit out all the filler. I tend to write the basic story, then come back and fill it in. A few examples:
I'm not very good at character descriptions. Reading back through the draft, I can see that I start talking about a character, but didn't describe him at all.
I'm also still working on the scene with Jake mentioned a few posts down.
