I love my book! Have I said that yet? It’s moving along so nicely. I just did a printout and evaluated it on the printed page. What a great feeling. It’s a real live manuscript. There’s a story arc document, a characters list and the book itself. It’ll be in two parts because somehow it divided itself that way organically in my mind.

One thing I’m learning to do regularly is write sections that occur to me, even if they’re going to be placed near the end of the book. So there are pieces that I’ve created as separate components from the main narrative. A series of events happened to me today, for example, that I was moved to put in the book. I wrote it while it was all fresh.

This is just too much fun for one person.
