Not Expecting To Get Much Done Today

Today is the FIRST DAY OF HIGH SCHOOL… with all attendant tech issues. And I’m first tier tech support in our house, so I’m not expecting to get much done today. We’ve already had issues, and I’m not expecting those to be the only ones we have today, or even this week. But today will be the SNAFU day, as everyone tries to get into the school servers all at the same time.

Funtimes, right?

So while today, I’ll get my writing in while the electrons behave themselves. I’m pretty pleased with how things are going already.

Wings of Air
Heir to the Firstborn, Book 4

67067 / 120000 (55.89%)
John Zebedee and the Monstrous Town
5662 / 30000 (18.87%)


I’m enjoying writing John and Ethriel again. With the addition of Parsons, who didn’t have a definitive voice in my head when I wrote Heir to Elf-Land, but now is starting to sound suspiciously like Douglas from Cabin Pressure. This happens at times to some writers (but not all, I understand) and the characters that I start hearing usually end up this way have a habit of taking over the story. (See also Owyn, from Heir to the Firstborn, who sounds like Sam Yao from Zombies, Run!)

Wings of Air is ongoing, and I’m about to hit another scene that I’ve been waiting to write. Who this scene happens to has changed twice since I first thought of it, but the scene is going to happen soon, possibly in the next chapter. (Or maybe the chapter after that…)

So, things are progressing, and the tech issues seem to have abated (I hope. It’s now about two hours after I started writing this entry…)

Let’s see how many words I can get on the page by the time school lets out.
