Right now, I’m devoting every spare minute between breakfast and bedtime to working on my book.
Last week, I reached 63,000 words and, after a year of effort, wrote the final scene. The celebration was immense. It was also short-lived when I realized this accomplishment is only a fraction of the journey. Next comes filling in the gaps and then editing. And rewriting. And editing some more. Who knows how long that could take.
If you’re a writer yourself, you understand the daunting project that awaits me.
But if you’ve noticed crickets chirping on this end of the line, it’s because I think of things to post here daily and instead use that writing time for the book.
Words of encouragement and news of your own journeys (inner or outer) are welcome comments in the meantime. Be on the look out too—miraculously, I’ve got a post scheduled to publish soon!
