Been hitting the old book writing hard and heavy!
Making great progress after the initial rewrite of the first three chapters. Much better. There will still be tons more editing but it is starting to hang together and make more sense.
I was hoping to keep the book to 12 chapters but may have 13-15. Believe it or not I am still hoping to get er done by the end of the month! Which is why I have not been keeping up to date here very much.
Today I am completing Chapter 11 and have over 45,000 words. I was planning to just do 40,000 which would have been a small book but now looks like it will be regular sized between 50,000 – 60,000.
I am so glad that I wrote the chapters about living in the monastery back in 2010 when things were much more fresh. I am doing a little rewrite of them but the hard word of remembering was all done. Thanks God!
The first 3 chapters of the book are a bit depressing I think but once I get into the monastery the tempo picks up and becomes much more cheerful and positive. The time in the monastery was a great period of my life and I hope to remain true to that.
So this is just a note to let you know I’m keeping on track and pushing forward!
