If I get up early enough, I do some work on the novel; but I rarely get up early enough to get very far past the pages I’ve already written. Editing, changing; maybe adding another page.
And then, while working, I think about where it’s all going, think of new plot twists, new names for characters. I actually love this part; it’s like thinking about past surfing sessions, checking the forecast for the future.
It’s interesting how a pretty mediocre session, over time, over time without waves, gets a higher rating in the memory loop. Rides were tighter, turns were hit harder, waves were longer, a little bigger. One difference here is, I can go back and edit, change, hopefully improve the drawings and the writing.
Past sessions. Yeah, those just get better with age
Here’s my illustration, the first, actually, for “Swamis.”
Subject to change, of course
