Making progress

Sometime things don’t go as you planned. For example, I had planned on revising one of the novels I’ve written last year. But as I was about to begin working on that novel, I got an idea for a new story—the kind of idea that keeps you awake at night. The kind you just can’t stop thinking about. You know the kind. So I decided to start writing an outline for it (on account of it now being an idée fixe) while revising another book…well, next thing I knew I was entirely focused on that outline instead of finishing the work I had planned to do. Long story short, the outline is now completed and so is the first chapter, which I penned down this morning. Sometime things don’t go as planned, but everything turns out okay in the end. ;)
