I set a goal to finish my third rewrite by this fall. As the poet Robert Burns wrote: “The best laid plans of mice and men/ often go awry.”

Over the past three months, writing became more regular. I completed several chapters and began to attack my nemesis of “telling” rather than “showing”. Progress moved forward, but then life interrupted.

I finally conceded and contacted my writing coach and editor, Alida. I advised her I would not have the rewrite in her hands by the end of the third quarter. She encouraged me to continue.

My new goal: End of March 2019. Hopefully this deadline will be met.

    Keep at it my friend. You’re my inspiration. I’ll be in Minneapolis from October 14 to 22. Can we get together for coffee?
