Bible Repair and Novel Writing Make a Mess

I finished two projects last week: a Bible that required quite a bit of work, and a manuscript of a novel I've had in mind to write for years. The Bible's owner is happy! I'll have to wait for feedback on the manuscript, an 83,000-word bibliomystery submitted to the Christian Writers Guild First Novel Contest. Now I'm cleaning up my trashed workroom.
    Next project: getting ready for Middletown's Heritage Day on September 27, where I'll have a bookbinding table. I followed the "write what you know" advice, so the novel opens with a scene that takes place on Heritage Day in the fictional town of South Mountain.
