New Look To The Blog.

I got bored of the autumn trees look, so I decided to go with this winter-themed look, at least until the end of winter (though winter has yet to show around these parts.). What do you think?

Also, I wrote another 2400 words the other day. My writing just comes in spurts, I suppose. Getting that much closer to the end, thank goodness. I'm already over 170,000 words into this novel, almost where I was when I wrote it the first time 15 years ago, and I'm only about halfway through the story of the original draft (which I have to split into two, no questions asked). The original draft is mostly irrelevant now, but some of the plot points remain. Im'ma gonna have to do some chopping I guess when editing time comes and do some real tightening of the prose, but I'll worry about that when the time comes.

It's a nice look!

And I envy your progress. Good for you, and you're right - do the editing when it's time to edit.

Thank you! I wish my progress was like this every day, but sadly it comes in spurts. I'd get more writing done more quickly, but then, sometimes after a time away from it I come back with different ideas for a scene that are actually better than I would have written it if I hadn't had the break. So it works to my advantage at times.

It looks very literary, writerly.

Nice job!
