Interesting Anna

Dang. Deadlines all around me. Self-imposed, but with external stressors. Benny is sleeping on my desk right now and thinks life sucks. Because he can't go out yet. I've promised he can go out with Weatherdude to watch him, tomorrow. Benny says life sucks. It's a nice day today, not tomorrow. At least I think he's saying life sucks. Considering he's asleep, it's hard to be sure.

He's sleeping on the hard copies of Anna, of course. Which I'm editing/redrafting for Taos Toolbox. And ready to tear my hair out. Because it's not perfect. argh. I know more than I did when I last put it down. I know more than I did 3 years ago at TT. But I still don't know ENOUGH. argh. The good news is that I'm happy with the current arrangement of the action and with some insights. The bad news is that I'm struggling and fighting every step of the way.

So off I go. Because the darned thing won't write itself.
