Crossing the Border to the Other Side...

By border I am not referring to the line between countries, nor, am I making a statement about divisions. I just crossed the 25,000 words line for my novel, and I can't believe it has taken me this far into the plot. It worked out almost perfectly--the word count--dividing the novel in two parts exactly where it should be.

I hate to think that I have neglected this blog. I am presently reading "The Gunter Grass Reader," and although I have enjoyed his short stories, his speeches seem disconnected with the overall flow of the book. It's difficult to get into his short fiction, although an essay about his writing of "The Tin Drum" is excellent. I will include some quotes from it here in my next post.

I want to thank everyone for their encouraging words. I am half-way through. I'll try to make the second half just as exciting.
