I spent the morning essentially working on what I would call the final first draft of Substance of Shadows. Not that I expect that to make any sense at all.

Right now I’m having to choose between writing the book and writing the blog. I think I’m making the right choice, although I miss writing insightful blog thoughts and commenting large scale in your lives. It’s always something. Still, it does me no good to pretend to be a writer by writing here and not writing real stories.

I’m going to leave you with a link to Chuck Wendig’s Twenty-Five Reasons You Won’t Finish That Story.

  1. Makes perfect sense to me. Only with me it’s more like polished draft, finished draft, tentative final draft, penultimate final draft … I shade nearer the end than the beginning.

  2. Hey, I saw what you did there – You’re on NaNo again@

    Glad to have you on my buddy list.

    Cam on the Nano forums.
