Rainy and mild

I feel rather lost without Gwen and Justin, although the first chapter of Book 2 is already writing itself in my head. I finally unlocked the key to this one’s structure, which is helpful, and can now do a truly detailed Writer’s Rough. We get to see Justin’s dark side in this one, which will also be kind of fun. And see how he does or does not come to terms with it.

Worked on material for Confidential Job #1 yesterday afternoon, and ran some errands. Didn’t do much in the evening other than work out.

My computer had a freak-out and I nearly matched it – there was a point where it claimed not to have a hard drive – but we seem to have negotiated a truce, at least for the moment, and I did a restore that seems to have worked.

I found a book on the Greenwich Library discard shelf for 50 cents – a hardback needed for research that I’d nearly ordered from Amazon for $17 earlier in the day, but decided to wait. I love when that happens!

I had a nice morning’s work on Earth Bride. I’ve deviated a bit from the outline, but it’s important to the overall story, and I’ve uncovered a rather disturbing flaw in Niki’s about-to-be husband. But it makes the story richer, so it’s all good.

I might have to go to the city to go to the union office or I might not, if my supervisors didn’t include me in the paperwork. I’m waiting to hear from the union, because I don’t want to make a three hour round trip to the city for nothing.

I have plenty of other errands to do today, and I need to pack. I’m off to Maine tomorrow for the holiday – I’ll check back in when I return. Have a wonderful week!
