Another run at the book

Johanna and I are writing this week, taking another run at “the book.”

We made the (painful) decision to put aside the draft we finished last summer and start over. Some times starting over is a much better course than trying to retrofit, re-architect and fix (sound like software?).

We’re pair-writing this time — whew it’s hard work! But the results are worth it. We’re working out the kinks in our pairing relationship. It’s working more smoothly today than it did at the beginning of the week.

Now, after a long day (3 chapter-ettes!) we are restoring our spirits by listening to the dulcet tones of Karl Zero’s cha-cha-chas.
