I have come to accept that Draft 4 will be the slowest one yet. With the plot thread established, thus begins the polishing that will give relevance to the details and resonance to the tale being told.
Uh, no pressure.
I have two days left to write before the Christmas break and I'm about one third of the way through. I admit I am dreading the loss of what feeble momentum I've gained. That said, Blogging My Novel: The Series will resume January 11, 2008. Blogging on all other topics will continue with reckless abandon. (And you thought you were off the hook!)
Wishing you all a safe and happy holiday season and a truly inspired New Year,
