WTF is THAT???
Photo of the Yesterday: A giant bug at work that must have landed on a painted wall, stuck, and tore itself pretty badly trying to get free. IT'S FOUR GODDAMN INCHES LONG! Isn't there some law against bugs larger than 2" being north of the equator? THERE SHOULD BE! Can you imagine splicing and laying pipe, minding your own business, and this god-knows-what flies in your face? I'd need a change of underwear afterward!
Today's novel progress: 1145 words. (Is that a coinkidink, or is Word rounding my counts to the nearest five? Must investigate...)
Joseph & Ralph share a car ride & fight. In revision, Joseph needs to just go home early on Friday, not be out for a week on comp. Originally I wanted him to be on his own, but he needs to interact, especially with Ralph. Having him go on comp was obvious shoe-horn plotting. Ken (5 year old) is watching the news & getting upset. Characters are acting on their own, which is good, but farting around a bit, which is not. Still, I'm excited that I can be productive at such an ungodly hour. Note - Go to bed when the kids do tonight. Sleep is good for quality.
Side note- had a beer or three with an old friend (Mike C.) in an East Village bar called d.b.a. Nice atmosphere. Lots of squirrels & pigeons running around the patio roof. Either way, it was great to catch up.
