Good writing week. Productive, if not copiously so.

I've been going through the stuff I've already written making some adjustments for slightly altered character trajectories that came out of my "big picturing" exercise. I thought it would be really tedious going back and changing things again, but I'm finding that as I do, I'm adding new material. Most of which will not end up in the final draft. Sometimes you just have to write stuff to know what's going on with all your characters, whether their POV, or these particular scenes, end up in the text in the end or not. You need to be in their heads to know how they'll behave.

Maybe not progress, but at least I'm not at a standstill or going backwards.

Bugs and idiot neighbors sure spoil a mood.

I have skateboarders who think the utility boxes out front from my property are there for daredevil tricks. Idiot kids.

those are the kinds that make you wish you could lay traps for them...

Actually, they make me think of birth control, but it's a little late for that.
