I haven't talked at all about what my novel is about and that's very deliberate and for many different reasons. One is that I'm afraid of talking about it too much for fear I'll lose momentum in the actual writing. Two is that part of it is very, very personal; the writing, in this way, serves the function of me sorting through some of my beliefs. Three is that rosepurr is going to hate this story. Which is fine. She understands that I don't write for her; I write for me. If and when I finish (not just the first draft I'm working on here in November but after revision), I would like her to read it, but I don't expect her to like it, mostly because some of its central content is stuff she has said she doesn't like.

But anyway I'm still at it. I'm a little behind on word count, but not too much. The characters are flushing themselves out really nicely. I'm pleased with that and some (but definitely not all) of the writing is strong.

The big problem right now is there is some research I need to do. Wikipedia is a wonderful resource, but I'm not quite finding what I need. I have a couple of books I need to go through and find some information. Some of it will simply be left blank or just described and will need to be filled out later.

But it's going.

Current word count: 8122
