This chapter started in a weird place, and now has wrapped its way back to reality. There is something to be said for keeping one’s eyes on the horizon and having faith in the tendency for a story to end up where it needs to be. I am now feeling more confident than ever that this project is going to work out the way I want it to.
Although from here I will offer only slim hints at the book’s content, I can’t help but share a particular sentence:
Colin viewed his neighbor’s feet with detachment.
That’s it, then. Goodnight folks.
Except that’s not it. I need to send out a huge thank-you to my friend Brady Hartel for his support of this project. He is due a fun bundle o’ junk when the process reaches that stage.
On a related note, you will see a few new details to your left: progress meters both for the novel (based on a rough guess of 300 pages) and for funding (based on rough estimates of expenses), and a tidy space to memorialize all contributors to this project.
Thank you all for your continued interest, and again for whatever help you can provide.
