When a rocket takes off, the blast is enormous. Then as it climbs, it breaks off parts of itself in stages, making itself lighter and able to travel farther by escaping earth’s gravity. Presently, my novel is climbing and the weight of the earth is pulling it down, I think. Nevertheless, this struggle is a stage in its growth.
I am presently in Chapter 23 The Call of my novel-in-process, GANI & SEAN. I’ve just written my 28,216th word. I’m tired and I’m hungry and my legs feel like lead weights.
Time to get up, move around, eat lunch.
