The Write Life

What I’ve Really Been Up To for the Past 9 Months

Welcome back! (I intended that as much for myself as you.) Yes, it has been a while. I haven’t posted anything to this blog in a while because I’ve been a bit preoccupied over the last nine months.

After nine months of finagling, haggling, sleepless nights, and almost backing out of the whole process (well, not really), I am happy to announce the birth of the completed first draft of my second book. Mind you, the thing may as well be written in Sanskrit for anyone else’s purposes, but it’s here!

I also felt compelled to let you know that as I sit here moving passages of text around into what will hopefully become coherent passages, tears well in my eyes—and not from vainglory, eye strain, or labor pains. I weep because the truth in the source material (notes from a dear friend and transcripts of interviews) is so simple, so profound that it still moves me. And I’ve been poring over this stuff for months.

So I guess I should say that I’m happy knowing that The Raindancer will help many of you see yourself and the world in a different way.

      I hope to have this completed long before the year’s end. As for the Bay Area, anything’s possible. It’s encouraging to know there’s fervent interest there.
