Notes & Observations

I did it. On Sunday, November 23, 2008, I crossed the 50,000-word finish line, and won Nanowrimo. Not that I really win anything, mind, except the joy at actually having a manuscript. But that's more than enough for me. For now.

And now? Now I think I'll keep going. There's still a week left, and there is still much I'd like to draft out. So I'm going to keep at it, until I feel done.

Jodie – this is all for you. Thank you for believing in me, and for kicking me in the arse whenever I've needed it. I love you.

Excerpt

"For a moment he closed his eyes and his mouth; still floating in the middle of the column of golden light, raised his legs and bent them at the knees, as if he were crouching in mid-air, and at the same time he brought his hands to his chest, palm-to-palm and finger-to-finger. He bent his forward, towards his touched hands.

He could no longer see the world, but he knew the world. He was the world.

He could no longer see the people around him, but he knew the people around him. He was these people, all these people, every person."
