Long Haul Through Part 1 Today

First part of the schedule was tough. I ended up tearing out some of yesterday’s work, so to stay on schedule, I had to write considerably more than two thousand words to finish with the right number. Final word count on the paranormal, which is probably going to end up titled INTO THE ROSE GARDEN: 4027.

Title, if we do go with it, comes from the following poem, which does an excellent job of presenting the theme of the book:

Footfalls echo in the memory,
down the passage which we did not take,
towards the door we never opened
Into the rose-garden.
T. S. Eliot

On to THE SCHEDULE, Part 2. Language Clinic.

    Thanks, Tina. The title INTO THE ROSE GARDEN is out of contention. No idea now what the book will be called. I’m voting for HOLLY’S BOOK.

    Brother Holly, the little teasers you post are so damn good! Hope this one makes it to the shelves. Sounds fantastic.
