I wrote another 1,500 words in the new first chapters of Nightcraft Mother this evening, and have gotten Callie well down the road of the thing she needs to do to drive the rest of the story…ooh it’s hard writing, though. I really want to get this right, and have it make emotional sense even though it’s a very ill-advised move on her part.
Earlier today, I made a stab at Cleaning All The Things (as one does before a parental visit), and also did some real estate stuff, exploring neighborhoods I hadn’t been through before.
And lo, now I am tired, and my eyes itch. Several days ago I was weeding and got some grassy seedy weedy stuff right in my eyes, and I’m still suffering an allergic reaction from it. I’m generally not prone to allergies–spring pollens and the like don’t do much to me–but apparently getting the stuff directly in the eye will do it. :/
And Mark arrives tomorrow! Yay! I know I just saw him in LA, but he hasn’t been here in several months, and I am very much looking forward to that.
