Reb MacRath is Now a Solo Act
Because of a pressing family issue and teaching obligations, Brad Strickland has been forced to withdraw from Team MacRath. The heading of this blog has been changed to reflect this. But earlier posts will remain as part of the historical record. Before retiring from the project, Brad did wonderful line editing on the first eighty pages and he will be missed dearly. But 300 pages of the novel have been 'completed', the remaining 100 pages have been roughed out--and I've reworked the pages that Brad had revised, removing his wordage completely. The novel remains on track for completion by Spring, 2012. And it will be all the richer for lessons learned from Brad about clarity and smoothness of style.
