Breakthrough!

About Lee Duigon

Even as Ellayne and Jack broke through into the cellar beneath the cellar of the Old Temple, to find what had long been lost, yesterday I broke through the fog surrounding my new book, Behold! In fact, I received this breakthrough very shortly after writing a post about still needing one.

Ask and it shall be given. Seek and ye shall find.

I now know something that Ysbott the Snake, the villain in this story, doesn’t know. And it’s a big something, too. Something that will lead me toward the climax of the story (unless it is the climax: we’ll see). Man, it would drive him plumb crazy, if he knew what I now know!

I have always relied on the Lord to give me the story that He wants me to tell; and in 13 books so far He hasn’t let me down.

But the sun is shining–I’ve got to get out there and write!

Still Working!

The sun has come out, unexpectedly, so I have to seize the moment and get out there with my legal pad, to continue my work on Bell Mountain No. 12, His Mercy Endureth Forever. Unlike Agatha Christie, pictured above, I can’t write fiction indoors. As I write, I have to try to inhabit a world that doesn’t, in fact, exist; and I can’t do that if I keep getting robo-calls from “Your Debt Partner” and various resorts that try to convince me that I’ve been there before and really liked it.

We have a black walnut tree in the yard which day and night bombards us with nuts the size of baseballs. Thanks to the incessant rain, the nuts have begun to rot while still on the tree. A lot of them go “splat!” instead of “pow!” when they hit the ground: icky black goo all over the place. But even that is less distracting than the robo-calls.

I still don’t have the climax to this story, still waiting for the Lord to show it to me. I feel like I’m chipping away at a great block of marble to get at the shape that waits inside, with no idea of what that shape will be. Your guess is as good as mine. Suffice it to say that currently hellzapoppin in Obann.

Well, back to work! I hope the nuts keep missing me: a few of them this morning were… adjacent.
