I wanted to do more than document the journey. I needed to highlight the likely events and places that most farm-raised men might have read about, but had never seen. Like signs for the polar bears in Cochrane, Ontario.
I even tried my hand at a sex scene, since sex was so common in the region.
Eventually I got my Parts together with their Chapters and their Scenes, and shuffled everything in place.
I printed out my manuscript with a locked up front and back cover, so proud to rid myself of this pink stock paper – agh!
Eventually, I tried to get a bit more organized with all the ADDITIONAL writing that was facing me.
