Pam Noles is looking for a few benevolent philanthropists:

A 10th-grade teacher in Los Angeles is trying to raise $642 to purchase 35 copies of Octavia Butler's "Parable of the Sower" for his classroom for a unit he teaches on dystopias. POST! APOCALYPTIC!



Well, I have around 5700 words of "The Tricks of London," and about 25 pages. And I really don't have much left to do except the transition to the climax, the climax and the denouement. But I'm a little stuck on how the transition goes, because it needs to contain a bunch of exposition about stuff that happened before either of these characters were born, and in that exposition is the key to the problem.

I spent the morning running essential errands, and now I think I might eat some lunch and give myself the afternoon off, and see if I can get another four pages tonight. I'd like to be finished, of course, but sometimes that's just not the way the cookie crumbles. And if I can keep chipping away at it, after all, the story will eventually get written. 

Hmm. Dear Brain, please tell me how the next scene goes? Thank you.

Love, Bear.
