Rewriting My Fourth Novel, Secret Matilda Pt. 3

I think I can see the finish line… of the first lap…

Remember when I said progress is progress?  Well, even slow progress is still a step forward.  My progress for this one slowed down quite a lot, it even came to a halt a few times.  What with the holidays, the insurrection, and that good ole virus lurking around every corner, the Covid, I’ve got valid excuses, right?

But that doesn’t mean I should have let it get behind and I did let that happen.  I expected I’d be further along than I am (I also need to remind myself of holidays and adjust my expectation on progress around them, but that’s another story).  So there I was and oh, that crazy work, life, work balance had to take a swing the other direction.

But it’s all good!  I had to buckle down for the past month (but is there really all that much going on besides all the madness?) and that lovely first draft is close to becoming a solid second draft.

I can almost taste it… like ozone and metal forks.
