Last night I started on the last (or possibly second to last) chapter of Blades, not counting the epilogue. Wrote all of three sentences, the third of which was rewritten this morning. But today, as a result of having very little to do all afternoon and evening, I got a whopping 2402 words written. Take that. Scene openned on the gathering in Vanichek's square, the treaty signing about to occur. Wrote the group teasing Simon about his hat, the freezing of the crowd, Marlene viciously knocking over frozen nobles, and the appearance of the lich and part of the conversation before I decided it was late and I should sleep. Need to find a name for the lich that isn't "lich" because although the word and the idea are old, the usage of the word to describe that idea is specifically from D&D and is only used there and in computer games. Need to talk to Jenny about that, and about some other organizational bits... But now, for sleep.
Good day for writing - The Commune Novel Contest
because, goddamnit, one of us had better get published someday.
