To Reach The Green Light At The End Of The Pier
FOR AS LONG AS IT TAKES: "We are saving ourselves through the words," says Eleanor, the leading lady of a novel-in-progress. This exploration into the creative process -- which includes plenty of distractions/tangents /thoughts & rants by Eleanor, her Biographer, and selected guest artists -- will continue until Eleanor is certain her story is "right." (But we dare not jump ahead of ourselves.)
There will be the occasional typo (as Eleanor points out), and much of this is intended to be "original draft" -- what comes out of our mouths (heads) first, and then set down in that order. Not all of it will be included in the novel, but all of it is happening in real time.

"The Little Room" -- Reconfiguration
Eleanor says: My Biographer and I are reconfiguring The Little Room, to ensure that the feng shui energy we need for the words is in the absolute, ideal alignment. We are also cleansing the room, and getting rid of anything that might distract us from the goal -- which continues to be the conclusion to my story, Volume One.
It's that perfect time of Winter, when the clouds open just a little bit wider and allow us to see everything with more -- well -- clarity. This is our window, our precious time, and as we are now more than 460 postings toward No. 500, we need to make each of them count. Please stay tuned, please, won't you? -- and meanwhile, you're welcome to scroll down, at your leisure. These 460-plus postings are all on one long page, remember. And my Biographer would say this, so I am going to say it as well: "To the words!"
ELEANOR says: "Please turn the page. Keep reading."
For more of Eleanor and her Biographer -- as well as the work of our many guest artists -- check out the older postings. "Everything is part of the process, and the process is the journey," Eleanor says.
