Chapter 5

Wednesday, November 30th, 2005

Another chapter down. This is the first time in a while I’ve managed to have enough time during a weekday to get much done. I’m pretty sure that’s it for today. I need to come up with a title for this thing soon.

Chapter 4

Sunday, November 27th, 2005

It was a busy week with the holiday. I haven’t had any time since I posted last, but I finished revising Chapter 4 this morning. I hope to get to Chapter 5 today. We’ll see.

Chapter 3 Done (Maybe)

Sunday, November 20th, 2005

I moved about half of Chapter 3 to a spot later in the book, and rewrote the remains around it. The chapter that remains is a bit shorter than I’d like, but I’m not seeing any obvious way to remedy it, so it’s done for now. We’ll see what happens when I drop the other section back in.

Oh Well…

I never managed to make it back to the book today, but I do feel like the day was fairly productive, which is a rarity for a weekend. Denise managed to find my missing stack of notecards (thanks!), so I’m ready to dive in tomorrow.

Chapter 2 Revised

Saturday, November 19th, 2005

I got 24 pages revised. Not great, but it’s a start. That covers up to the end of Chapter 2. I removed a large section that was slowing things down.

I hoped to do more, but there a large section of Chapter 3 that needs to be moved to a later chapter, and I can’t find my stack of notecards for it. That’ll teach me to clean my desk! Hopefully I’ll get more time this afternoon and tackle the next bit. For now I’ve read it over so I can bounce it around in my head while doing other things.

Let’s Get to Work…

Saturday, November 19th, 2005

I set the alarm for 5 today so I could get some work done on the book before the family is up and about. Took me a bit to clear my head and catch up on email and such, but I’m diving in now. Wish me luck!
