I once tried wtinirg a novel. I didn't get very far with it (only about 30 pages), but while wtinirg it, I kept almost all of it in my head word for word. I had backups, but I didn't need them. If you really, really concentrate on wtinirg as well as you can, you end up rewriting every sentence hundreds of times. You read through each sentence so many times while trying to intuit what the next one should say, that they all end up sticking in your mind afterwards. You end up remembering page after page verbatim. I've read other people's accounts of the same phenomenon. I clearly remember V.S. Naipaul saying once in an interview that he remembered his most recent novel entirely by heart. If a writer's attitude towards his work is so casual that he needs backups, then I'm not really burning with the desire to read him. If that script is now irrevocably lost, then it probably should be.

Thanks so much for your story about why the waters around Cape Henry and Va. Beach are so important to you! And thank you for all you do for CBF and the Bay! The more people hear these personal stories the more we can connect people to our cause. Thanks again for sharing...

Supporters hope to convince the legislature to approve a bill that would give a boost to proposals to build an offshore wind farm east of Ocean City in the Atlantic Ocean.

Fantastic work and congrats on your awards. Continually raising the bar.
