It is inevitable. Ask me to do something and I always seem to pick the least likely method. Draft#2 is going slower than anticipated, but interestingly I am liking what I am producing. 

That being said- I haven’t written a word. 

I know I know. That makes no sense. Except, I am knee deep in outlines and character development and my story is clicking. Hence the ass-backwards comment. I outline after I have finished the first draft, do character sketches a year into my WIP and think about setting every blue moon in between. 

Whatever. It is working. I may not be done by my March 31st self-imposed deadline but I have progress. And that is all I need at the moment.
