The snot monkey has packed its bags and is saying its last farewell’s and today is a holiday here in Canada so I decided to try a short 6km run.
The run itself was fine and we kept a reasonable pace but as soon as we stopped I felt a bit light headed and even now, a couple of hours later, my body is still complaining. There’s less than six weeks to our next Marathon so this is “not a good thing”(tm).
Progress on The Ghost Smuggler continues apace (I’ve always wanted to be able to say apace) – mostly because I’m most of the current chapters are brought over from previous drafts.
That said, Ethel the Muse was on fine form at 4am this morning and she’s insisting that I need to weave two characters from early chapters into the final act (actually four characters, but three of them are a related group) and add a sprinkling of technology. No idea how I’m going to do that but it shows that the outline isn’t stopping me from continuing to write like the Simpsons.
Oh, and I’ve come to the conclusion that one of the key characters needs to change dramatically – the current incarnation is a walking, talking cliche.
Now…to the keyboard…(yes, I’m already there but you know what I mean).
