Back in the saddle again this morning. Still stuck on soloadventure's wonderful tea bowl. Between this and the mug thatpotteryguy made me and the one from stwish's budddy, I may never drink out of goofy mass-market cartoon mugs again. (I keep having to steal that last one back from TBRE, though. She is a black hole of tea cups.)

Today, I start revising chapter three of Grail in light of new, awful, earlier events, and the balance and spin the book has finally attained in my head. I don't expect a whole lot of new wordcount for a while, but I may suprise myself. And there will need to be Scenes of Mysterytude added, since it turns out that's what this book is. (I expected a plot coupon fantasy. That was the plan. Book One: Quest Fantasy; Book Two: Chase Novel; Book Three: Plot Coupon Fantasy.

But it just wasn't hooking together that way, so I had to go back and find a structure that did work. And now I have to go into the formless morass of what I have written and stuff the armature in, then redistribute the flesh over the skeleton to make it look natural before I animate it.

A little like reboning a boneless chicken.

Or Frankenstein's monster in reverse.
