Planning and Plotting

Well, today was fairly productive. I worked on the maps for The Silver March today and have a pretty good idea where everything in the story is going to take place. This is very useful.

Then, while the daughter-unit was in vision therapy this evening, I used my old hand-held tape recorder and started putting down ideas and story threads on Cherry Blossom Pass, which is the working title for the fantasy story set in medieval Japan. By talking ideas out, I'm starting to develop the character's personalities and set up the situation. Also, by recording my thoughts, I was able to get quite a bit done without having to haul a notebook or a laptop with me to the session. I just walked around outside and let my thoughts wander where they wanted. Eventually, I'll go back through the tape and hopefully, after time has given me some perspective, I'll weed out the good ideas from the bad ones before I start writing this story. I have enough other stuff in front of Cherry Blossom Pass to write, but I want to get some of my ideas down before I forget them.

Finally, I did get some writing done on the Chronicles of the Sea Dragon. I'll post numbers tomorrow. Unfortunately, my knee is really killing me this evening, so I think I'm going to go straight to bed.

However, before disappearing, I did do some other types of plotting with Tee Morris about our appearances at Dragon*Con and Archon/NASFIC. I'm thinking serious scotch drinking is going to happen at one or both of these shows. *grin*

We just had our local convention, and my husband was one of three who put on a Scotch tasting -- it required advance sign-up to keep the #s under control, and from what I understand it went well. One of the "scotches" was from Japan -- which technically means it isn't scotch, but it's a single malt whiskey.

Sorry, that last Scotch comment was me. I thought I was signed in.
