I have totally gotten away from writing practice. I am not sure why it happened, but I can tell you when. It was when I started my current job January 3, 2012. I need to get back into regular practice — either here or in my notebook. I cannot expect my writing to improve if I am not writing.
That being said, my son it adding a bit more to two fight scenes in the novel, and then we will do a semi-final edit. This novel has been a long process, but it has been worth it.
