Open Wounds

Webley Revolvers and Rann Kutch

I’ve started the writing phase of my new book.

I’m six days in. I started writing snippets before this so I had a thousand words or so written during my planning phase. And in some ways I’m still planning. But I’ve put down the research and started in.

Here are three words I wrote today from different parts of my text:

Mumbai

Salt

Blood

My writing process is long. I’m writing early in the morning before my family wakes up (and before the dogs grab their leashes in their mouths and drag me to the front door.) – before the sun rises. I’m writing half an hour to 45 minutes at a shot. This is good for me as once my day starts at 6:30 it doesn’t stop until the evening when I’m too worn out to put fingers to key board.

I have a 2011 smile on my face.

    • Havanese. Karen has allergies but not to this breed. They are great, small dogs. Very scruffy. Very smart. Max loves them. So do I.
