Well done Laurie,
As you know – I write a bit.
I have started draft 6.
Finding both the right level of detail, and getting the timing somewhere near optimal, are not easy.
Hardest is what to leave out, and still achieve a sufficient level of coherence – often things that look like a simple hop from one idea to the next appear as vast chasms to others. So I need to build a metaphorical aircraft to let them fly high enough that they can see the landscape, but still travel with speed and comfort (the grand canyon isn’t quite so daunting from 30,000 ft, but standing on the edge the idea of crossing it on foot is daunting – but quite fun in a Cesna).
