She almost slipped away. I was stuck in the middle of a chapter. It was a little rough there for a few days. Tonight, it just happened to fall out. The Process works. I sat down with no words for the page and just let the work find itself and let the process begin. I placed my fingers to the keyboard and just let them go. Before long, Alice was in my head. I was in hers and the words began to flow. And flow. And flow. Turned out to be the longest chapter I have written so far and I’m not 100% certain I’m done with that chapter yet. There’s still a lot of words that need to come out. I wrote as long as I dared and clocked in around 48,000 words now. 237 pages. And, we’re just getting started.
