I am sure it is all as confusing as a Twin Peaks episode!

The online workshopping method helps me get perspective.  Laying out ALL the information for editing it down and re-drawing for the eventual book draft.

The music helps me shape (choreograph) the chapter.

Sometimes I feel brutally unsure, crawling.  Sometimes it all writes itself.

And, somehow– the double helix of the two timelines continues to twist around themselves.

30 strange chapters completed.  23 parts for a total 46 chapters.  

23 pairs of chromosomes.

 

 

And I am either getting closer to the truth- my truth- or farther and farther away from it.

Who am I really writing and illustrating this for?

I remind myself that nothing is set in stone.
