I have tools for its capture: a color-coded spreadsheet of chapters so I can remember where things go, what season it is and who's doing what. I have a hand-written list of the steps I want to make sure I hit before President's day weekend (including a checkbox for Celebrate, of course. I do love a list). I have feedback from trusted readers that I'm incorporating. So, it would seem I have the upper hand with Mr. Unwieldybeest. But it scoffs at my tools and good intentions and snorts with delight when he slips through my hands.
I'll get you yet, Unwieldybeest.
