progress report

Wrote a couple more pages last night, pretty formless ones, but at least I was using the character who hadn't yet spoken or appeared except in the thoughts of another. barbarienne had a suggestion for his character which was very good, but I am not using it; however, I decided it would work if he was "in the know" about werewolves, so he's an old friend of the British werewolf.

I don't know why the simple things are sometimes the hardest to figure out.

I'm getting a lot of useful ideas from Tommy by Richard Holmes. It's also providing some tiny bits of information, consolidated. I'd feared I would have to search all over for those bits. Yeah, I know, I wasn't going to "research it to death," but it's hard just to skip over things when there are real details I don't have to make up. It makes the world I'm writing feel real to me, even if the reader never notices.
