|ABS 1829 Bible is fourth from left. It was available during the General Supply|
After a few false starts I finally managed to start writing Chapter Four of the ABS project. 1179 words later, the chapter is really starting to take shape. I am finally starting to feel good about it. This chapter is more narrative-driven than the other chapters. I am trying to give my readers a sense of the General Supply (the attempt to provide a Bible for every American family in two years--1829-1813) as it unfolds over time. In other words, I want to create some suspense as I chronicle the ABS effort to pull off this enormous feat. I want my readers to feel the clock ticking. Will they finish in two years? How can I make my readers feel the anxiety of the Board of Managers as they receive reports from the field about the progress of the work?
