So far, so good

So far, so good

The first draft of the memoir is coming along swimmingly. Just crunched the numbers, and I’m averaging 858 words a day. Not too shabby. My goal starting out on this book was to write at least 500 words a day each and every day. I’ve missed a few days around the time of the wedding and a camping trip we took to Amish country for Skyspook’s birthday, and other days, I’ve written much more.

It’s hard to pinpoint exactly how far through the process I am, but my rough guess would be about halfway – meaning I should be well on my way to finishing the rough draft by Christmas. Right on schedule. Initially, I thought I’d finish early, but the book is turning out to be a great deal longer than I thought it would be.

I’m finding myself having to keep a list of things to fix, themes to develop, and all manner of other adjustments to make for the second draft.

List upon list, all folding into one another, layers of complexity.

How will I ever get it all done?

It is a mystery.
