The first draft of Book 5 of Over the Hills and Faraway is completed … Hallelujah!
It has taken the best part of three months to reach this stage and frankly I have no idea how long it will take me to complete the second draft, which is when I send the story for editing and a subsequent third draft.
Unlike many of the great and the good who post on Stories on Line I do not regard writing as anything other than a hobby,an enjoyable hobby I will admit, but it is not an obsession for me … which might explain my lack of success … and there are times I don't have the urge to tap away at my keyboard. I am a hunt and peck type of writer and it takes considerable time and effort for me to bang out more than 1000 words at a sitting.
Nevertheless, once I make up my mind to complete a task I stick to it, and I urge my reader to keep the faith.
The latest, and last, instalment of Dewey Desmond's trials and tribulations will eventually see the light of day on Stories on Line, hopefully before the end of the year.
Thank you for your forbearance.
