SEA got early but limited attention today. What I thought would be a fantastic, toy surprise sort of scene– the introduction of my secondary female character and an adventure in ocean swimming– has been strangely hard to get into. I feel separated from the scene, though I think the words I’m getting are objectively good for this stage. I think I need to cut loose with some wild dialogue. That might get me going. I can look forward to that in the next couple scenes.
I spent most of the day writing the example for the first Working Review column, which will be going out tomorrow morning. I still have to finish the article itself. Tomorrow will be an awkward day. Guests are coming and I have responsibilities to deal with while they’re here. I can’t wait for Friday, when I can take a little break.
