Although Bart and I have not talked about it much online, we are in the middle of a journey more arduous than the Great Eastern Trail: writing about it.
Our rough draft has been done for a long time, but the process of turning a rough draft into something less painful has been long and tedious. Finally, we concluded that it needs to happen in "real life" as opposed to over the internet. (Pro tip: Don't write your first book with someone who lives over a thousand miles away.)
Happily, Bart is able to fly to Minnesota next week for Round 1 of Serious Editing.
Today I finished my edits on over 200 pages. I can't wait to share them with him.
