i am iron man.

...and soon, real soon, possibly this weekend, possibly today, I need to sit down with a bunch of 3x5 cards and my outline notes for Shattered Pillars, and come up with an actual chronology for events in the book.

Because right now what I have is a disorganized sheaf of notes that says things like "Haboob!" and "Bouldering the medieval city!" and "Geomancy dragon!" and "They are not eaten by eels at this time!"

And you know, that's all fascinating, but a list of really cool shit is not a plot. Despite what some books seem to think.

And I just thought of a third cool thing, and this one solves a plot problem I had been having.

Oh yeah. There's a book in there somewhere. Lurking. Waiting.

It's coming back.

I can feel it.
