Progress notes for 13 August 2006:
By the Mountain Bound
Pages revised: 28
Total pages: 414
Cuts and additions: Well, it was 418 pages when I started, and everything I cut was redundancies and scaffolding. And I've added about a page of new stuff.
Reason for stopping: Have to go back over this damned chapter again.
28 / 414
Stimulants: peach tea
Exercise: hiked around UConn with stillnotbored today
Mammalian assistance: Mebd has abandoned me for my houseguest.
Today's words Word don't know: choosers, silkening, chooser, venomed, lovestruck,
Mean Things: forbidden love, doomed love, unrequited love, unacknowledged love, tainted love, and an attempted rape.
Tyop du jour: when the stun rises
Darling du jour: To say he was hatchet-faced would be a kindness.
Jury-rigging: It's all jury-rigging. I added a transition that will hopefully make the (vitally important to the plot) opening seem less arbitrary, and now I'm trying to get Strifbjorn to step up and develop a goddamned voice, please. Bad angel, no biscuit.
Books in progress: Hal Duncan, Vellum
The internet is full of things: Creeptastic. May be triggery. But cool. (via anghara)
