Philip Brewer's Writing Progress

Happy equinox! Any minute now, I guess.

I got some good writing done! I've got about 1100 words. I threw out the first bit I'd written yet again, but this time I'm happy with what I replaced it with. I think things are finally going along okay.

I don't have an outline. I have a pretty good idea how the story goes, at least through the middle. I'm still a bit fuzzy on the very end, but I've got a general idea of how it has to go. I'm hoping the details will come to me as I write the middle. The first half is pretty clear in my head though. It's a story of a character who re-makes himself, which is my favorite kind of story.

I'm really looking forward to writing the next bit, now that I'm over the hump of getting it started. Even having to go to work tomorrow doesn't lower my excitement.

My knee felt fine this morning. Jackie and I lifted weights, undaunted even by the chilly rain that dampened our warm-up walk.
