As of today, my new draft of my book is around 55,000 words.

I'm not sure how long this new draft will be, but I know I'm in the last third of the book, and I know I should be done by June 4th.


Today, I celebrate other people's writing -- specifically, the kids of the Loyola Park After-school program. The oldest group are putting on a full show adapting their own stories for performance side by side with five Monkey performers. My group (the little guys) and the middle group are each doing a short performance. Ours is an adaptation of a story they wrote as a group, "Where in Hollywood is the Royal Baby?" There will be jalepenos, and puking, a stunt baby, Icelandic royalty making handprints outside of Grauman's Chinese Theater, and a dance party.
