Wrong Words

Wordcount: 1489
Reason for stopping: These are actually words from the wrong end of the book. Say, somewhere in Act V. Now I have to write the next bit of Act II, scene xv.

At least they're written, though.

The Perversity of the Novel Tends Toward A Maximum

Wordcount: 59 more on The Stratford Man but 880 words on the Kelpie book, A Glass of Rain, because I suddenly understood how it related both to The Stratford Man and also to Bridge of Blood & Iron, so I wrote the first bit of the first scene before it could get away. Which gives me a total for the day of 2,426. Not shabby. But I need to get more Will tomorrow.

Reason for stopping: Bed calls.

I'm addicted to Semisonic, and it's all Celia's fault. I know she feels terrible about this.

Nomail again today.

***
Said the mother: "Do not wrong me, don't take my daughter from me
For if you do I will torment you, and after death a ghost will haunt you
Love, fare thee well, with me tithery eye the doodelum the da
Me tithery eye the doodelum the da, Me rikes fall tour a laddie oh
There's whiskey in the jar. Hey!

Whiskey, you're the devil, you're leadin' me astray
Over hills and mountains and to Americae
You're sweeter, stronger, decenter, you're spunkier than tae
O whiskey, you're my darlin' drunk or sober

--Whiskey, You're the Devil (Irish Traditional)
