Also, I've filled up 66 pages longhand since September 3rd. It would have been nice if this book would have consented to be typed.
At least it's consenting, though.
Very weird: I have no feel for the structure of this book, or its arc. Mostly, I feel at this point that I'm just filling in plot and theme and characterization until I meander to the place I have arbitrarily designated as A Good Stopping Spot. I wonder if this is the problem with having the thematic elements of a novel show up first?
Lo, recalcitrant book.
At least it has fire ants.
