on Bridge, and end of scene. Rewriting, this time, is slower than new writing. But I am in no hurry.

I've kind of got this story And it's set in this shape. And I'm bending it into a new shape while trying not to break it.

It's fiddly work, and I accept the fiddliness of it all.

I need to figger out how to get Carel's choice up front so the reader understands it, and understands why she makes it and makes it so suddenly. And it's an important choice--a choice that drives the book--and she's not a POV character. Hmm. It's not an Elaine scene. So it either has to be a Matthew or a Keith scene.

In good news, four Russian werewolves named and accounted for.

'Didn't hold' from GVG today. M'ris has me beat--she had a nine-rejection day. A moment of silence for M'ris, please.

Okay, lobbing a couple of turnips. One off to Argosy and one to All-Star Zeppelin Stories.

Well, there's the very, very, brief 'prove we really have got a series idea' proposal for Murder Among the Godly written and sent off to arcaedia and truepenny for the vetting and slapping around. And I have an hour or two before I have to go to bed. The question becomes, do I poke at something pointless and fun, or do I try to actually work on Bridge some more? One-Eyed Jack seems to be on hold currently, which is just as well.

So many projects. So few hours in the day.
