Closing In On ‘Done’

I’m late again on my schedule of a Saturday post here. I like to think it’s because I’m working hard on Book 3 of The Modest Proposal Institute and not because I’m becoming forgetful. It’s too soon for Old Timer’s Disease.

I am working to finish the book and get it to an editor and I’m closing in on my word count. Unfortunately, with me, that doesn’t mean the story is done; it just means I’ve written a lot of words:-)

The next stage is clipping away the undergrowth so the story can be seen. It’s like our garden really — we let everything grow until nothing can be seen because we don’t have the heart to choose which are flowers and which are weeds. Next week will see some serious word pruning and then it’ll be perfect — I hope!
