Another 6470 words edited on Broken Trail. Lainey’s almost at the finish line. Changes here include Scotch’s Iditarod placement — she doesn’t come in third at all, it seems… At this point, I need to write at least two more scenes for certain, both from Scotch’s POV on the trail. I wanted to spend most of the Iditarod from Lainey’s POV — fresh eyes that the reader can connect with to view the race. But I think I’ll insert a scene while Scotch is writing one of her love notes on the trail, and where she comes in to Nome. Maybe a third after they have their phone conversation while Lainey’s still in White Bird.
Gina Torres is on ‘Flash Forward’?? All the more reason to watch, man! WOOT! I find it interesting that despite the obvious opportunities to change what they’ve seen in the future, those people who witnessed something dramatic that they might alter … don’t. I mean, busting that fellah for drug paraphenalia would change the future, guaranteed. But Demetrius didn’t do so. Weird.
Still reading S.M. Stirling’s Conquistador. It’s a book that’s interesting in concept, enjoyable in character and plot, but still easy to put down. I’m only reading it at work for the most part… I picked up Stephen King’s Dumas Key yesterday. The first few pages intrigued me. That’s next of my list.
My weekend starts tomorrow! YAY!
