Busy Little Bee


I'm not sure if I feel more like a busy little bee, diligently toiling away, or the white rabbit in Alice in Wonderland, "The hurrier I go, the behinder I get." Either way, I'm keeping my head down and trudging onward!

I hope, HOPE, to have most of the companion short, Margret's Redemption, written tonight. I have never been good at judging how long it will take me to write something. Sometimes it takes on a life of it's own and expands to places I hadn't considered before. Sometimes that is fantastic and sometimes it's a real drag because I'm trying to stick to a timetable. My solution has been to quit giving myself time tables.

So, I'm off the work on Margret's Redemption. I'm not sure if I will start working on Into the West: Sharon Springs right after that or wait and write the other companion short and then write Into the West: Sharon Springs. I'll have to wait and see how I feel later. It will depend on where my thoughts take me.

But for now, I write!
