Well, I finally finished my re-write at noon. I am exhausted. I have been spending up to 12 hours a day on this project for the last three weeks and I just sent it off to my friend Melba Markham to edit. It feels good to be this far. The next book ought to go a lot faster. It better. I can't take another ten years.

Now the work begins. I still have a cover to design and the layout to complete. I have one month to get the rest of it done. I am excited to finish so I can start on the next book. What a crazy life this writing stuff is.

Well, the holidays are finally over. I have been busy trimming the fat out of the manuscript, trying to make it meaner and leaner. It has been time consuming and fun, but I am anxious to get moving.

I wanted to post another photo. This is another old photo we found in the cellar at Pottery Niederbipp. I am guessing these were made by Isaac, circa 1970. There was an article that ran in the Niederbipp Post that included some of these photos.
Happy 2009.
