Off to Indiana

I leave tomorrow for a few days in Indiana, where I'll be attending the Undergraduate Ethics Symposium hosted by the Prindle Institute of Ethics at DePauw University and seeing what my NEW APARTMENT will be like, the housing the university will be providing me for my stay at DePauw for the 2011-12 academic year. I will get a first little peek into my BIG ADVENTURE.

I still haven't finished my novel. There is only one chapter left to go, but it's such a fateful chapter, when the whole book will either all come together or all fall apart. Well, that is an overstatement, because if it all falls apart, that just means that I'll need some putty and super-glue. But the writing of this chapter is intimidating me, apparently, as it's sitting there unwritten staring me in the face and has been for the last three days. So I'm hoping that at the airport, or on the plane, or in the cute little inn where I'll be staying in Greencastle for the next two days, I'll make myself face it, and write it, and maybe even be able to look upon it and pronounce it good. Or at least better than non-existent, which is saying a lot.

The end of this first-draft-of-the-novel adventure, and a glimpse into my next-year-in-Indiana adventure: I'm ready!

  1. I have no doubt that the ending will come to you while you're traveling and that the book will all come together! Bravo for getting through the draft! Safe & happy trails.
