I’m pretty happy. I did a lot of dicking around early in the evening, and this is after a 4:30 dental appointment that took forever (first cleaning in four years, but no cavities, hurrah!) and picking up windows at the hardware store.
So I have the first two scenes written, and I’m not entirely sure my narrator is sustainably smartass enough to go with the first paragraph, but then again, I’m not sure the first paragraph matches the theme of the novel. I also clearly need to get a better map of Indianapolis if I’m going to set a novel in the city again, because I don’t know downtown well enough.
Anyway. I’m calling it a night, and I’m pretty pleased.
