I've been called for GRAND JURY, four days a week for four weeks. Needless to say that this takes a great deal of time away from my writing as I get lots of emails each day.
During the down time between hearing each case, I've attempted to do some writing, but with everyone talking about different topics and my wanting to join in, there's no time to write. I tried doing some re-reading and editing, and with the noise which is created by everyone else, I can't seem to concentrate.
In the meantime, I did an outline of what I want to write about in each chapter. At this time I've already written 31 chapters, on 191 double-space pages, with about 49,600 words. and anticipate I'll need another 25 pages or about 6,200 additional words before I can type the LAST PERIOD.
