Looks like I’m not going to make my deadline of finishing the first draft of Snowbird in July, but it’s still going well.  Almost there!  I just keep getting busy with the most random stuff, lost my motivation for a little while, and my grandmother has been ill.  Her illness, though, has given me new inspiration.  Since I fear she may not have the opportunity to meet her first great grandbaby next year, perhaps she will have the opportunity at least to enjoy my other “first born.”  I think it would be fun to sit and read it to her when I am finished.  I know what you’re thinking, “You’re at the end, you can start reading to her now!”  Well, I haven’t applied all of my edits and final touches yet, and the further I get, the more I know that the beginning will change, so I’m not comfortable sharing it yet.  I have a new deadline goal though: finish draft 1 by August 28th.  Why?  Because that’s when my last semester of school starts and I know between work, school, aikido, family, friends, and trying to stay sane I definitely won’t have more time for writing than I do now.  Wish me luck!
