I didn't actually work on any original fiction this week, only plunked out the second-to-the-last episode of The Destroyer, which gets me that much closer to getting back to original fiction. The second draft of the final episode is going slow, though. I keep finding distractions like wandering aimlessly through the aisles of Home Depot and you know, working late and stuff.

OTOH, prior to the working late, work last week was a little slow at times, and I found myself re-reading these weekly writing updates for the past year. As I did, I kept thinking, "Oh, that was a good idea, I should remember that for when I get back into it." So I started keeping all the little nuggets in a separate file. The plan, as soon as TD 219 is out, is to complete the survey I had been doing (before I experienced fan fictus interuptus) of all my many, many story ideas from the last year, but I am not going to do an outline. Re-reading the cumulative wisdom of the last twelve months has convinced me of that. My story will just have to meander a bit, then get chopped. With future episodes novels in the series, stuff can be moved.
