I had every intention of following through.
And then. I have another story still being written, and I find it hard to concentrate on more than one long story at a time. And Fridays are short, and my husband (silly man!) wants a chance to use the computer on Saturday nights and even on Sundays. (Can you imagine?)
And I decided I'll finish the current story, plus whatever b'days come up, and then start the "novel" anyway. And when it's done, it's done.
Somehow, I feel relieved.
