Writing Progress

My first drafts often have the literary traits of a Dick and Jane reader. Well - Perhaps not that complicated. When I get stuck on a passage, I often go back and cover over the early parts in layers, while wielding a giant eraser for the impossible to save pieces. I don't really look to adhere to literary standards, current or otherwise, until, near the end, when checking it over. Even then I let my own style rule, for good or ill. My current project is on page ninety eight. It is the same manuscript I began when the NaMo write contest was on. It is my first attempt to write a love story. This is just a note to affirm that I am still in the arena. I have high hopes that I will get this one finished before the year is out. smile emoticon
