Since my last, excited post, that board has changed a bit, a few more arrows and side-notes clarify the plan, but the only real work that's been done is finishing the first chapter of this section (chapter 3). Tomorrow is my last day of work before summer, and it's my hope that things will begin to move quickly. I only have two weeks until my little self-imposed deadline to be halfway through and I'm just not sure that's feasible. What happens after Monday will be a good indicator. Frankly, if I can get a solid third draft of THIS SECTION by then, I'll be happy. One key to getting that done I think is not stopping to take my time or relish in small victories. I "finished" chapter 3 this morning; now sounds like a good time to get to work on four.
Mary is getting very big and the twins will be here soon. More and more, people are telling me that I will be able to write after they come because they spend so much time sleeping and even when they're awake, babies just kinda hang out and look around. But none of them have twins. We'll see. I'm excited and not at all scared, except in the way you always have to be a touch wary of the unknown. I don't know how this will work, how my life will change. For now I plug away.
Until next time, I'm Eric and I'm an unpublished novelist.
