Chapter Five

A little writing today, but mostly putting together the chapter 5 puzzle.

This book is very much explore, write, organize, revise. Lather, rinse, repeat.

I hope this means when I get to the end, that we will have something fairly whole.

And believe me, I’ve been writing a lot of crap. Oh yeah. But the book doesn’t seem to want me to get a whole draft down first. The analogy I had been using was beach combing. Now I think it’s making a card house. I can’t get the rest of the cards to stay on top without a good foundation.

Meanwhile, no shame in my Weird Tales rejection. I think I’m going to ask a few more eyes to take a look at Mark Twain’s Daughter before sending it back out again. If any of you are interested, let me know. I’ve got one great reader lined up, but more are good. Bonus? It’s a short.
