could be on a rainy morning. could be on a rainy night.

3500 words on Gotham Jazz today. Except for making up something plausible for the synopsis, I will finish the proposal tomorrow.

Nothing like a confrontation in a stairwell to move the narrative along. I think I'm actually managing real interpersonal tension in this book, and not brittle, prickly characters yelling at each other for no reason other than to simulate tension. Which is, of course, always a concern.

Today, we met the Private Dick. And the Lady Poetess From Hell.

Also, apparently Thelonious Monk is the music this book needs to be written to. Surprisingly enough.

Comments

In my experience, Thelonious Monk is the music everything needs to be written to.

Seriously, if any neurologists out there want to collect evidence testing a hypothesis that listening to Monk makes some of us temporarily smarter, I volunteer.

Hope Monk is helping you find some Brilliant Corners.
Smiles for work accomplished.

Other Jazz

Make sure there's a good section set to Hard Bop by Art Blakey as well?
The god Paul Chambers?... I look forward to it.
