Despite my cat’s best efforts to distract me, I have finally finish entering all my journal entries for my second novel into a computer document ( 141 pages, 31,152 words after writing for about one year). This number is close to my ‘average per year’ for my first novel (31,142 words). The novel is still a long way from finish. I have a basic plot line sketched out, but there are massive gaps in the story line and editing is needed – work for another day.
My mind has been swimming with thoughts and ideas for the past several days. Thoughts on my work, short stories, and novels. They even slip into my dreams at night. Like A Recurring Dream Within a Dream:
For now, I need my rest.
