It is a sad fact that I cannot often get past ‘Chapter Three’ of any work I start. I chug along just fine, pumping out the words, and then in the middle of chapter three, I start to stall.

Today I realized with a jolt that I was already halfway through the fourth chapter. I am delighted. Maybe this one was meant to be?


This has been a good writing week so far. On Monday, I started a memoir called The Book I Wish I’d Written and got up to almost 3000 words. On Tuesday, me and my writing partner came up with the beginning of a new song for a musical we’re contracted for in June 2015. Today, I decided to forgo a nap and write another chapter to The Book. Over 4000 words and going strong!
