Stardate: -309718.264174277 – 17,486 and Counting!

130413WordCountWell, I’m now up to 17,486 words. Not breaking any speed records, but continuing to work on the book. I’m doing some needed research. In the throes of NaNoWriMo, I didn’t take the time to do the research I need to do. So now is the research time. It’s better now than earlier, though. Several things need researching I didn’t even know back in November that I would need to know about! Ah, well! I’ll keep on working on it! I OWE it to Tevis, Punjab and Tevis’s children! [Tevis is the protagonist and Punjab is her Goldendoodle mobility service dog.]


I’m looking at wheelchair self-defense techniques right now. There are, believe it or not, several methods! But none of them are workable for someone with Rheumatoid Autoimmune Disease (RA). Neither are any of the Cane-Fu methods. OK. So where do I go from here in terms of her self-defense? Hee-Hee!! that’s a secret! 😀

In the meantime, I’m continuing to develop characters – Tevis, her children, Punjab, a few friends, and some other contacts. Writing a coherent, believable, mystery is a LOT harder than even I thought! I will persevere, however, despite multiple distractions (not the least being my ever-lovin’ husband, Himself! :-D)

See you later.
