I have a sad: there’s a minor character later in this chapter who I now don’t want to kill off. But she must! Even if I wrote her an excellent introduction. Perhaps I should change her last name to ‘Darling.’
Lonnnnng day and I technically went over but I can fix the timestamps on that because it’s my blog, so there. Over 21% done already! That sounds a little off, but then I was writing stuff before the month started.
Well, it was a busy day, wasn’t it? Had to get up to get the car over to the shop, then run around getting the kids squared away on their homework before their dental appointments. Then after that we had to go back to the homework, and it took me forever to get 2,000 words in.
Still did, though. Which is good, because I got a newsletter to finish.
It took me a while to get things going, alas. Kids and homework and whatnot. Well, that and the minor detail that most of the online people I know today are so stressed they’re vibrating, which is making me vibrate in sympathy.
I spent today doing something useful with my time: book outlines! I decided that it’d be a good idea to write out one for PATCHWORK GOD (sequel to a story in ANAGNORISIS) and TINSEL RAIN (the Shamus Tom Vargas sequel to FROZEN DREAMS). How… industrious of me.
PS: I won’t tell you the details, save one: the last line of the TINSEL RAIN outline is There! Now people can have a bunch of goram sequels. Happy? …As you might deduce from that, I had not previously intended to turn FROZEN DREAMS itself into a series. But I can take a hint.
