...but if you look at the sidebar, you will see that I am three-quarters the way there. I promised myself 37 days ago that I would write 1,000 words a day, average, and I haven't quite made that amount. But I'm still on the treadmill, and yes, there are days when I seem to get nowhere...

There is a reason, though. Instead of ploughing ahead, I have been reworking and polishing so that my agent has something to show editors.
And have I followed the synopsis? No. I never, ever do. Somehow, when I start writing there are so may better ideas crowding in. Characters take turns I never expected. They become real. The world becomes real. The villainy becomes real. So does the despair, the hope, the love, all the things that make up a story.
I love my work. I just have to hope that out there somewhere is an editor who loves it too.
