...and speaking of handwritten drafts, and by way of partial explanation for my recent near-radio-silence:

I spent several unexpected (though thankfully not nearly as expensive as they could have been) hours in the Elgin Hyundai service waiting room yesterday, which is quite comfortable and where my choices were (a) watch horrific lowest-common-denominator daytime TV (we're talking Paternity Court, which I sincerely did not even know was a thing), or (b) write until my hand fell off.

The latter was clearly the better choice, and made for a remarkably productive morning, if some slight awkwardness when I hit the three pages of emotional stillbirth-related brain-dump and was on the edge of tears when the guy came to tell me my car was ready. (Thankfully, they have three little mini-cubicles -- like library study carrols -- for people who want to work while they wait, so it's not like I was sitting and scribbling and looking miserable while facing everyone else in the waiting room.)

And! This means, after months and months of "How's it going?" -- "Hard to say. No, really, it's all handwritten and not super linear, so I really can't easily say," I can now say it's really, really close to done. And those last few steps are gonna be a doozy...

I KNOW! And it's even closer now. I think the draft will be finished this week! Then the work of making it performable will commence...
