It begins

I finished the first read through.

I decided to try a reading experiment. Since I have a certain unease when reading on my computer, I uploaded my Word document to my Kindle so I could read it in relative comfort.  It also gave me an opportunity to imagine it as the real deal (albeit a poor version). I discovered a few unintended benefits to reading on my Kindle Touch. One is that it can tell you how long it takes to read, very handy when there is a deadline looming.  Another benefit is that any formatting issues are impossible to miss.  I highly recommend you give it a try.

I started “Life With a View” about fifteen years ago. So this first read through was mostly to reacquaint myself with the story. But I discovered a small problem in that it is not even close to a complete draft. The story isn’t even complete. I am currently in Japan, a good half a world away from any concrete notes that I made or any other files that are stored on another computer that I thought I transferred over. I’m starting to feel the convenience of this cloud that people are talking about.

At any rate, I am without my notes. All I have is the story as written and my memory, which hasn’t served me well.  Time to fill in the blanks and create it anew.

So begins the arduous Outline.
