I'm almost done with the first chapter of Sunspin. My social butterflying this past weekend somewhat got in the way. Yesterday produced very little new wordage at all, as the time available to me I spent on making changes to the outline and doing some plumbing revisions to the draft. I'm concerned about my pacing and detail, and need to let Fred gnaw on this stuff a bit.

So for the next few days, I'm going to work on a couple of requested pieces of short fiction. (That, and attend junior high school basketball games.) That will let Fred do his stuff on Sunspin, while keeping me productive.

This novel is going so differently from my usual efforts. I feel like I could write a book about, well, writing a book.

Funny how all this process stuff works!

Last night I sat down and outlined a rough writing schedule for the next six months. I think I do better with some sort of outside structure like that, in the absence of confirmed contracts.

It speaks to the madness that my life had been in the past year and a half that this is something that I can only feel comfortable doing now.
