progress report

I started writing book two! Weekend word count, a little over 3000.

I don't have an outline yet. Or any chapter files. Or a definite idea of the overall plot. But I do have a single file of scenes involving various characters, and a short list of research questions whose answers will allow me to put a little more detail into those scenes. I have one scene that is meant to be erotic and also kind of funny. ("Is this meant to be erotic? I do not find this erotic.")

Go me.

Only 97,000 words to go!

library angst

Oh library, why must you have so many books?
So many books that I want?
So many useful books, all lined up together?

Oh library, why can't you download directly into my brain?
