I’ve spent the last two days working on the prologue to my Louis Armstrong biography, and I think it’s going well. Very well, actually. In fact, I seem to be on a roll, and so I plan to keep on rolling for at least another day or two. My hope is to have the entire prologue roughed out by dinnertime and substantially polished by week’s end. I’ve been in an elevated state ever since Friday night: hundreds of facts that had previously been spinning around in my head have now started to clump together and take coherent shape. It’s the most exciting part of a writer’s life, and I’m right in the middle of it….
I’ll keep you posted, but don’t expect to hear much more from me until I stop for gas. In the meantime, cross your fingers and wish me well.
P.S. You go, Girl! It’s damned well about time that my formerly anonymous co-blogger dropped the veil and identified herself as (among other things) the dedicatee of the Teachout Reader. I kept waiting for somebody to make the connection!
