I’m Calling it Progress

Dummy book page for Caesar the Creature

Dummy book page for Caesar the Creature

Finished! Sort of. At least the first page of my dummy book is. Dummy book – an extraordinarily apt thing to call this bunch of pages I’m supposed to put together. (That can’t be any kind of original observation.)

All that’s left to do is the editing. I laugh. I laugh in its face. Actually, editing’s my favorite part of the whole writing process.

The writing part’s good. I write long hand. I have to – not because of any superstition, but because I seem to need the rhythm I get when pen and mind are cooperating. I love that rhythm. I dislike description very much. What’s not to dislike about struggling over things I myself would probably skip if I was reading?

Editing, though, is a pleasure in every way. Which works out now that I have to do it.
