Small Milestone

As part of my publishing schedule for Book 3 of Acacia I'm supposed to turn in different things at different times. (In return for which my publisher writes me little checks.) In April I was supposed to turn in "half" of the book for my editor to peruse. ("Half" is a loose term, not a readily quantifiable unit of measurement.)

Well, on this last day of April, did I do that?

In a word: Yes.

The next thing I have to do is deliver the finished book this fall. Will I do that?

Of course, but only if enough people send me crazy energy and creative positivity. Can you do that?

Well done David! Considering everything else that's going on I think you have achieved a wee* miracle.
*'wee' is a very loose Scottish measure, as in dram.

Of course especially if extra cheering will give you more energy to write as this might lead to more writing and hence a longer book ;-)
