Some preparations in writing the novel but it is slow. There is a very good chance I may have to go pell mell into this thing just like I have most every other novel I've written....and if that's the case I can't see how I'll ever be that good. All of the REALLY good writers take notes and do things meticulously.

But it is better to write it than not to write it. :/

Still haven't finished air yet but I will have to by Saturday. Do or die as it were.

I've written another poem for the pod cast, 4 pages or so called "The Witch Queen." I may like another title for it. I'll have to think on it.

Precyber is at Chapter 30 and the goal is to be at Chapter 32 by Sunday.

I've finally finally started on notes for the novel. Its been pretty slow going, and I think part of it was that typing it all in here just wasn't working for me, so I've been working on the notes by hand in the early morning. So far, I have a rough map of the second age, and I'm going to keep working on that until I have the big map and then make Glashause, where most of the novel will take place.

I'm also starting with the basics of the plot, and so far I have four threads which will require a bit more definition, but its a start. I hope to get an outline done, because one way or another, come Tuesday the 8th of September I keep going at 1000 words a day for 120 days non stop until I have a novel...or at least the first chunk of one.

Precyber is at Chapter 30 at this point, but I have a lot of edits I have to turn into Ken.

Thinking about starting two more poems, but I haven't decided what they should be at this point. We'll see.

I've been going back and forth for the last month about whether or not I still wanted to do the fantasy novel in September or something else. There was a strong desire in my mind for a plan in which I basically finished the twelve stories and then and only then did the fantasy novel, but its not working out that way. The stories are taking too long, and as interesting as the setting is so far, I'm thinking the only way to make this work is to just leap in and do it.

So starting every morning for the next three months until Dragoncon, my goal is to type in something more about the world and the plot in hopes of getting things laid out as much as possible before I start. We'll see how it goes.

In the meantime, I'm still writing the 12 stories, finishing with Air.

I finished chapter 29 of the Precyber novel, and hope to finish Chapter 30 this week. Ken and I have a goal to finish it by the end of the year.

Very little accomplished. I hope to finish Chapter 29 of Precyber and Noir Femme Fetal tonight.

I'll also probably do 400-500 words for Air.

More thoughts tomorrow.
