The reasons for this blog: 1. To provide basic author information for students, teachers, librarians, etc. (Please see sidebar) 2. I think out loud a lot as I work through writing projects, and I'm trying to dump most of those thoughts here rather than on my friends.

Finished up some end-of-semester paperwork today, and rewarded myself with a little work on the WIP. I pulled a bunch of pieces together for Chapter 11. Looks like 11 will involve downtime for the characters, a plot hint, and some arguments. Then chapter 12 will have some danger and a dead body. Will see if that's enough to keep things moving.

Heard from agent, who reports that the first ten chapters are holding up their part of the story for the moment.

There is no question that this middle part of the book is beyond my skill level, but I'm gonna get the skill by doing it anyway.
