Things are moving extremely fast with the novel now. It took what felt like hundreds of revisions of the outline, but things appear to finally be stablazing to the extent that I can sit down and write.
I still have a huge amount of reading to do for the more nuanced aspects of character, but that can be dumped into the second draft. For the moment, I just want to finish a first draft. And, at last, it appears that’s a real possibility.
Of course, there’s a real possibility that either no one wants to read this thing now that we’re going to be in the Biden Era or, worse yet, there’s a civil war / revolution and people REALLY won’t want to read it.
But this novel gives me hope, if nothing else.
