Hopeful and wary regarding my self-imposed deadline to have Rescue on Blue Mountain published before Christmas. It was the same deadline I set for last year and failed. Concluding I learned something from that failure, I took this one on with a sense that it is doable. The narrative is in place, the art work and its integration with the narrative is the challenge. Keep plugging away. I am sustained by the vision of happy grandchildren and impressed parents on Christmas morning.
