Distracted by the blueberry bonanza in my backyard.

Have started work on a beat sheet (task 8, Nail Your Novel,) getting ready for a writing workshop in three weeks.

I’m listening to recordings I made of my WIP while foraging for berries, trying to grasp the main point of each chapter. Scary to realize how much I need to let go of.

Like picking blueberries, I’m looking for the good ones – the nuggets of writing worth keeping. So much backstory, detail, context – leaves, unripe berries, squashed berries to leave behind…
