I have a good excuse though. I am a mere two chapters away from finishing my first complete draft of a novel. That's right folks, after three years of writing it and many more years formulating it, that sucker is almost d-o-n-e. Well, as we all know, it will not be done, but at least it is written down from beginning to end.
My goal is to have it finished by the time the Inkers meet Tuesday night, so I cannot afford to spend any time here ruminating this week. I'll be back next week, when I hope to be deep in the editing process (but will save a little time to ruminate).
