The good news is that I see this as the end of it - and I am happy to spend more time here because I see that I'm nearly finished. Yes. Nearly finished and it will be published. Oh - I don't know by who and by when but I know it. And that, my friends, has me over the moon.
Now, how can you help? You can help as you always do by witnessing my plan. Just knowing a couple of sets of eyes will fall on this will help me get back on the horse and finish this thing. So... a plan. Here it is:
1. I will work an hour a day on weekdays (all I can offer while my job is on) and as many weekend hours as I can.
2. I will be completely done by October 20th and sent off to my mentor. Why that date? Because that is a year to the day since I met my mentor at the writers' retreat called Piper's Frith in Newfoundland - found my voice and went back atter. And I like the roundness of that. It gives me 29 days to get it done. However I am leaving on the 17th for Ottawa so chances are I'll be finished before I go. I hope. Nice to have a date though.
And this is out my window. Well, it isn't there now but one like it will be back I'm sure.
