I’ve come pretty close to finishing my current draft, draft 20 of Alma Means Soul, primarily focused on looking for unnecessary words that could be very easily done away with without any significant loss of anything of value.

I’ve nearly completed draft 20 of Alma Means Soul, eliminating a surprising number of unnecessary words.
- I have some plans. I always have some plans. Planning is easy; it’s doing that’s hard. I plan to do some posts on frequently asked questions – parenting, controversies including the question of adult onset ADHD, who and when to tell about our ADHD, and others of course.
