I've also been working on the novel. I made a new rule for myself--I do not get to bring work home except on Thursday nights. I will no longer drown myself in paperwork. I'm making sure it gets down at work. It's a challenge, but I think it's beneficial for me and my other pursuits as well as being wonderful for creating additional family time.
I am working on chapter 10 at this point. I'm trying to get the backbone of this book down as quickly as possible and then I think I'll go back and just edit it like mad. My loosely fitting goal is to have the first draft done by mid-February. Cross those fingers!
