The weekly confessional:
ROYAL STREET remains in limbo-land. It disappeared into a black hole six weeks ago and hasn't been seen or heard from since. I will be patient. I will be patient. I'm really not good at being patient.
RIVER ROAD is stuck in limbo-land until RS re-emerges. Then there will be frantic revisions to make it jibe with its predecessor. Oh, and reflect an environmental disaster since much of it is set in coastal Plaquemines Parish, Louisiana.
The work-in-progress continues to plot, uh, I mean plod, along. Only got about 500 words on it this week. Running total: 75,550.
