The first day of writing my new book longhand went really well.
There was one disaster early in the day when Pooka destroyed the first three pages of work, but stuff like that happens.
Shitajiki boards make writing with pencil so much easier. I got a lot accomplished today. I am hoping to hand Dear Old Dad the first chapter for editing tomorrow. When I get the second chapter finished we are going to make a huge announcement on Patreon.
I got a wonderful selection of Japanese pencils from Ken in Seattle. It was a wonderful gift, but a million times more special arriving on the first day of the new project. Joy!
