In a startling break from my endless series of virtually identical posts about my troubles with writing, I'm happy to say that I've been working on the novel almost every night for the past week, trying to force my myriad notes into something that looks enough like prose for me to call it a first draft. I'm aiming for an hour or two a night, which sometimes yields a page, sometime just a couple paragraphs, depending on how much work needs to be done. I'm working totally out of order, which isn't ideal, but the opening is refusing my advances so it must be skipped for now.

Maybe it's because I have so many kids, but that photo just troubles me. I see skinned knees and chafed buttocks ahead....

Yeah, definitely. I'm hoping that the photographer made it look steeper than it actually was.
