Chapter Six of The Ballerina, the Boy, and the Thing in the Water is finally done.
You will, of course, have no idea how happy I am to be able to type the sentence above. To put it into perspective, I started Chapter Six on November 26th, 2007, and only completed it yesterday, March 25th, 2008! That is one day shy of four months to write a 4750-word chapter. Ridiculous! However, I believe it has been worthwhile. Many of the story elements are coming together, fitting better than I would have ever expected from what is just a first draft. I feel the Beginning of the novel has now come to a close and I am about to embark on the fantastic voyage that will be its Middle. Damn it, I wish I could reveal more!
