I’m within sight of beginning a new novel. The resurrected “Manny the Artist” will now be a two-part story — the younger Minus Orth (fomerly Manny then Mattei) in novel 1, and the middle aged Minus in novel 2, a satire.
I have many pages of notes, my stepping-stone outline method, and by August 1st I’ll have developed enough of a narrative arch, character sketches, and have beginning-middle-ending to start with extended writing.
Meanwhile, THE VILLAGE WIT lies in a good state: looking for a publisher who wants to print it.
What else life brings is gravy.
