DANIEL: THE UNDISCOVERED SIDE

During the twelve years Daniel spent working on the book that eventually became Ishmael, he produced eight different versions, Ishmael being the eighth. The first seven versions went this way: with high hopes, he would write two or three or four hundred pages (and in one case a thousand pages) before being forced to face the fact that the book he was struggling to create was still not there. He would have to put that version aside and begin all over again from scratch.

But first, before he went on, he needed a break. And he needed to remind himself that he really could write. He let himself go – anywhere, no maps, no rules. Over the years he journeyed again and again to a land he would come to call Woomeroo
