Ok, so it’s not snowing in SoCal, but last night’s thunderstorms were close enough. House leaking, AGAIN — it wasn’t enough I was up at 2 scrounging for cold meds, clearly Husband and I needed that 4 am rush to plug leaky windows with spare towels and packing tape. Plus the mysterous, constant ringing of the fax line, and the crashing about of trees overhead … Suffice it to say, best intentions to be out the door at 6:30 am scuttled. I didn’t make it out of the house until nearly 11 am, and didn’t get to the office until 1. But I am giving myself full-credit for a 4-hour work-session, despite only putting in 2.5 hours, because of head cold, lack of sleep, and also:
I did good work.
Worked on SECOND NOVEL (hereafter “2N”) outline, and researched Hodgkins disease, which afflicts one of my central characters. Have developed a table to track “normal” Hodgkins-treatment timelines against the timeline of 2N, so I have a sort of sense of what happens when, cancer-wise and plot-wise.
Tomorrow I do the same for wedding planning, which afflicts another of my central characters.
Thursday, I continue to fluff out outline, and then Friday morning I put together the quick, key-word table that tracks various plot lines against each other for easy comprehension for one who, mid-process, is usually very confused.
All this as an attempt to put together the master 2N Bible, a project I’m going to attempt to pull together even as I’m in Colorado next week.
