Waiting is hard, hard, hard. Breathe will be out from Algonquin in 2010, Spring. So, while I wait, so I won't chew off my own hands in anxiety, I am writing a script for the novel and I am 200 pages into a new novel, with another on the back burner, and I have hit a snag. Okay, more than a snag. A dark-night-of-the-soul. I have that wonderful John Irving quote--see a few blog posts below--on my wall, to help me and I have just discovered that a character I thought was going to be gone early on, needs to come back. But how to do it so it feels real???
