Couple of things. First, my fingers are pleasantly sore from teaching myself how to play Fulsom Prison Blues on my girlfriend’s guitar. Forget learning all the chords and how to read music. It’s all about Youtube and playing your favorite songs.

Second, wrote a couple of thousand words tonight and am 500 words shy of the 50,000 mark. I start in on Chapter 20 tomorrow. Had a lot of fun with this last batch of words. Managed to get into a conversation wherein important things were revealed to the heroine, and much was made clear that had previously been obscured by shadow.

What’s best is that I’m not really sure what happens next. I have vague ideas about where I want it to go, but these characters (at the very least my protagonist) has very definite ideas about what she wants to do, so I may just sit back and let her decide what happens next.
