the novel is progressing

The writing's been going pretty well lately. Since late February, I've been working on converting my extensive notes into prose and I'm now more than halfway done. And that's with a massive lapse from late April to mid-June. So I've fairly realistic reasons to believe I'll actually have the first draft done by the end of the year (which will be almost exactly eleven years from when the concept for this particular novel first occurred to me). There's really no reason why I shouldn't, even though my notes become far less comprehensive the closer I get to the end.

Still, I feel momentum and that's rare for me. Must keep at it though, more dedication, and no more long lapses. I just wish I could make myself write late in the evening before bed. It's a perfect quiet time for writing, but my brain gets so lazy during those hours.
