progress report

1000 words last night! And I solved the major problem of my synopsis!

I should remember my own advice, which often boils down to: keep it simple, stupid. And "law of conservation of characters." And "law of conservation of plot elements." Those things make the story click together in a much more satisfying manner than floundering randomly. Alas, I cannot seem to skip the stage of floundering randomly. Oh, well. It all works out in the end.
