AFDOC Weeks 37-39 Committed
Grab your hat and get ready! The season is upon us when we hit the ground running and never take the time to look to see where we're going or where we've been-the mad dash to the finish is on -sixty-one days left.
After a raucous weekend, the goblins moved on to other points of haunt and left me to write in relative peace. They hissed at my seemingly impossible task. I have, after all, set 12/31/10 as the deadline for the first complete revision of AFDOC.
This morning I committed to my critique group to have the first chapters to them on January 3, 2011. Can't cut it much closer than that! I'm excited. One can only work in a vacuum so long without growing worried that it's all a hoax. That's the primary reason I enjoy reading letters of famous authors-Welty, O'Connor, Wolfe, Faulkner, Hemingway. They give me hope that all is not lost as they often lament about the quality of their work and the printable value of their latest offering. Helps me know I'm not alone in my madness.
I never miss a day writing now to keep me focused and in Caroline's world lest I lose sight of her dilemmas. She is a busy twelve year old with complex insights as they play out over the everyday lives of friends and family in her sleepy Southern town.
