Hi Guys

OK today is a better day. I'm feeling a little better about myself, and things are going very well. I'm in the home stretch writing wise. In fact, I'm going to Wally-world this afternoon to buy colored paper to run out the draft of the book for editing. I'm about 24-48 hours ahead of actually having the draft finished, but I want the paper as encouragement.

Two new scenes and beefing up the ending. It's all planned. I'm really excited and getting my momentum going.

THEN I print it out and go through the frustrating process of looking for (a) repetitive situations. (Which usually happens when you get interrupted and don't remember that three days ago you already said that. OOPS). (b) Repetitive words. (Every book has one. I don't know why. One book it was "slid", the next "eyebrows", but there's bound to be one, and I need to find that sucker.) and (c) GAPING PLOT HOLES. ("You can't have Bob do that." "Why not." Bob died three chapters ago.").

When I have everything I can find fixed (a day or two) I will send it on to Cathy, keeping my fingers crossed that she doesn't absolutely DETEST it. I'm incredibly excited, and nervous.

I gave two of your books to people as gifts last week and made them very happy.

Glad to hear things are going good by you today.

Glad to hear you're feeling better today. The whole draft-thing is mixed with emotions, huh?

And I know what you mean about particular words. After most of my first drafts I somehow manage to get attached to the word THAT! Go figure!
