Worked on Real. Broke the 90,000 word mark. Less than 10,000 words, if it decides to stay within its 100K estimate. It’ll be a good feeling to finish that first draft. It’s going to need a heck of a lot of work in the revisions, but it will be good to have it all out in front of me to revise.

Sam and Callie have hit a frightening crisis – separated by thousands of miles, and she’s missing after a bomb went off. With Sam’s rival Crispin (who keeps threatening to run away with the book, but we can’t do without him at this point) out and about, right there to search for her. The book’s covering a lot of ground.

Typed Chapters Nine and Ten of Shallid.

The new play forms and shapes itself inside of me, preparing to be written.

This morning, I got up at 5:30 AM. By 7:45, I’d written the first scene of the first act, 28 pages. I’m trying to let each scene germinate and then write it, instead of trying to do the whole thing headlong. I’m trying to work with the Furies, rather than be driven by them.
