… words written for the sequel to Pre-Earth so far. You get used to this pattern; you write, you change, you delete, you rethink. But all in all, you need material to work with, and no matter how good your draft writing is, you know you can always improve both the manuscript and the plot. You just have to stick at it. I really want to thrill my readers and do my best. It’s worth getting up at that ungodly hour to work at it. It’s crazy, but it feels good :-).
