The world building has been an eye opener. So far, it looks like I’m going to be re-outlining Born of Silence from scratch. A lot of the scenes will remain the same, but there are going to be sooooooo many changes . . .

Worked my second day shift in forever yesterday. It was slow and boring, but I got over 600 words during my lunch break. Today I put in another 1009. And I’ve only considered the Europeans, the American Indians, and the street kids. I’ve still got at least four more governments to come to terms with that will cause ripples and eddies in what individuals will do and say.
