Chapter 200



At 4pm on March 11th, 2015, a Wednesday, I finished writing the 199th chapter of the first draft of what I call Book 3 (it hasn’t got a title yet). On the page, I wrote the time and date because I had reached a milestone. Two hundred chapters and only a few more to go before the end of the book. I had been on a roll. I had just written several pages in a single sitting. I had done more work on Book 3 that week than I’d done in any other week for the past two years. Things were going great.

I started Chapter 200 with printed words, neat and new. But I was burnt out and I had other work to do for school so after only writing a sentence, I put it down for the day.
