Progress is slower than I hoped. Having a full-time job and teaching on the side often makes for slow creative writing progress. Yet, I have made some progress. I’m at 95,300 words and, more importantly, I’ve figured out what I want to do with those last 7 chapters. I can write quickly, once I know where I’m going with a narrative.

My friend Craig has finished his first draft! Congratulations! It is a wonderful thing to progress to the next level with this. I’m wishing him a good rewrite and copyedit, so he can get it to an agent or publisher soon.

Meanwhile, hoping that my day job slows to a dull roar, which will allow me to take much needed vacation days to write on the novel.

During that time I’ll be in ‘novel prison’ as Craig calls it!
