Sunny and cold
I got a little over 12 pages total done on Ransagh last night. They’ve paused in their journey so Raisa can gather some information, and they get to split up and do different things for a bit. Shawndor is showing some cracks, which is necessary at this point, and Kenelm’s learning more and more how narrow his worldview has been, and how, as paradoxical as it sounds, sheltered his life as a knight was to this point. He’s learning how to behave as an independently thinking man, rather than a stereotypical knight. Growing pains, at his age! It also gives the younger members of the group a chance to explore and get into some humorous trouble. I originally planned for this section to run about five pages, but I think it will run more like thirty. I’m on page 216 of the written manuscript. Yeah, it’s a trilogy – they still have three more elements through which to evolve once they’re done with the East!
I need to run some errands this morning, and then it’s back to polishing articles and working on Widow’s Chamber.
I’m not much of a party girl, but I’m kind of looking forward to the viewing parties this weekend. I don’t see these people very often any more – our lives have gone in such different directions. But we still genuinely like each other, so it’s nice to catch up.
I better get to work so that I can play tonight with a clear conscience!
