Friends and relatives constantly ask me the difficult question, "How is the book going?" and "When is it going to be ready?"
Truth is, I don't know the answer.
I don't know when I'll be happy enough with my work to send it to an agent.
I don't know if an agent will think my story is good enough to make them money, because if they don't then I'll be back to rewriting this thing yet again.
To be honest, though, I think I'm getting close. I think I'm now good enough. I just have to get the entire 100,000 words consistent with that ability. I'm at about 60,000 now and, if my current trend keeps up, I'll knock out another 3000 more words per week.
