There's a bit of a flurry of writing happening at the moment. Mostly because I need this book finished in 8 weeks. Yesterday I went back over the 22 chapters so far and wrote backwards outlines.

https://youtu.be/h6-Y1WIkaYY Yes, I know I usually add the video at the end, but this song I particularly like and it says most of what I want to say, to the people in my life who show up when I need them.
