This is it

Tomorrow begins the next round of novel_in_90, and marks the time I start back up with Witherwilds. Out of the 16K I already wrote for it, I may be able to salvage a couple thousand, but I'll write it all from scratch and check it against the first version.  I've spent the days since the 18th doing research, naming, brainstorming (*waves to Brainz*), and plotting. For the first time ever, I think, I used index cards to organize my scenes. The operation was only semi- successful since the Terror on Three Legs decided she disagreed with the way I had them laid out.


Despite her nefarious efforts, I got a flow that will more or less work, or at least give me the basic layout of the first book. Still lots of room to wing it and please my organic-craving, seat-of-the-pants, spontaneity-loving heart.
