I’m realizing that my priorities have been shifting and focusing as the year proceeds. I’m spending less time on short stories (tending towards no time) and more time on the novel. Even so, I think my goal of getting a complete draft of the novel by year’s end might not be reachable. August saw me completing chapters 14 and 15 of the novel. I got a slow start to the month working on chapter 14, but chapter 15 came along a lot more quickly.
Not much to say about short story work. I’m still plugging away but making not much progress since the time just isn’t there.
