Sunny and cool
So much for rain all day! It’s definitely cooler, but it’s bright and sunny. I’m not sure if I’ll make it to the beach today, but it looks like a lovely day.
If you want to keep up with what’s going on, First Amendment-wise, here’s an interesting site:
On the agenda today are several things: The Widow’s Chamber, Cutthroat Charlotte, more work on “Impressions”, some business-related writing, and maybe some work on Periwinkle and/or Ransagh.
I swear, the paperwork reproduces at night when I’m not looking. No matter how much I put away, the next morning, there are stacks of it again everywhere.
The dilemma with Charlotte, as I’m approaching the arc dealing with the trial of Anne Bonny and Mary Read, is how to best use the trial transcript. The copy I have is a published, copyrighted version, so I have to use it as the basis for the dialogue, while making sure I don’t lift sections to avoid plagiarism. Yet, I also have to use the correct terminology and protocol for the time. It’s a challenge.
Off to do some research on Cape Cod marshes. I’ve been there frequently, but I need some nuts-and-bolts real info. I need flora and fauna info. I bet my Petersen’s Field Guide to the Birds is in storage, gosh darn it.
Angel Hunt was finally moved out of the Horror category and into the Fantasy category.
How many times did I go out yesterday and I still forgot light bulbs?
