it’s a book!
Announcing the birth of a beautiful baby manuscript at 6:12 this evening.
The manuscript is one and a half inches tall, 138,514 words long, weighs 301 pages, and is—for the moment—sleeping peacefully.
(The printer is somewhat exhausted after the labor, and is thin on ink.) -jl

and thousands to go before I sleep
November was a busy month… So I didn’t do much blogging. Apologies!
It was a huge month for writing, though. As my draft meanders toward its end, it has been easier and easier to get to my writing desk. The action is speeding toward the climax, and my characters have been more vocal, demanding all my attention and even whispering to me at inopportune times. (I feel so furtive, scribbling notes during church. Yikes!) I hope to finish the draft by Saturday!
