I have reached the point in the draft where it becomes painfully evident to me just how much work I need to do in the next draft.

Also, I've filled up 66 pages longhand since September 3rd. It would have been nice if this book would have consented to be typed.

At least it's consenting, though.

Very weird: I have no feel for the structure of this book, or its arc. Mostly, I feel at this point that I'm just filling in plot and theme and characterization until I meander to the place I have arbitrarily designated as A Good Stopping Spot. I wonder if this is the problem with having the thematic elements of a novel show up first?

Lo, recalcitrant book.

At least it has fire ants.
