Spent quite a bit of time on the Endurance outline today, got about 2,000 words in. This isn't an issue of being unproductive, but more like the gears clashing on my process changes of late. I'm adapting a lot of what I've learned from The Heart of the Beast and Sunspin, and it's taking quite a bit of careful thought.

Wound up having something of a story conference with calendula_witch this evening, just to validate my approach and bounce some reality-check type questions off her. She had some shrewd responses which were very helpful. That sort of early sharing is way outside my historical process, which is to keep this stuff close to the vest until the draft hits the page.

Oddly enough, a carefully considered outline requires careful consideration. Still, I can see this sucker moving into shape.
