Forty Days and Forty Nights


After two hundred and four pages, I begin to lose track of things a little.  I draw character maps, list names, complete a chronology.  This inspires a day of organizational mania.  I count words; I count chapters; I add and divide pages per day.  I look at the calendar, decide when Iā€™d like the first draft, and, omitting Sundays, count the days remaining: exactly 40.  My wilderness.

    Hello Dian,

    I am very happy to hear that you are close to completion with the Madrigal. I look forward reading it. No matter where I am, I will always support your work.
