I seem to have acquired a cold. That has put me a day behind in the contest. Last year this would’ve been panic inspiring. This year not so much. Perhaps its because this year’s novel is personally much more interesting. I have a general idea of its plot but so far I haven’t discovered its conclusion. That uncertainty drives me forward to learn the fate of these characters. I’d heard writers say that the novels surprise them. I think this will also be true in my case.
In the meantime, I’d better get well.
