Check-in point #2

Wow - what a week!

I'm safely moved in to my new, ground-floor flat.  Thanks to LOTS of help from my friends I not only have all my furniture in place, but also about half my unpacking done.  The phone and internet connection is working fine, allowing me to report in and say that while waiting for workmen to finish laying the floors on Thursday and Friday I managed to outline ten scenes for "The Listeners", and sketch out a broad layout for the entire story.  There's still one fuzzy patch where I haven't figured out exactly what happens, but the general shape of the novel is there.

There's still a fair amount of post-move paperwork to deal with, and that will eat into my mental energy to the detriment of my writing projects.  However, my wonderful, supportive friends are continuing to help me get things sorted out.  By the end of the month everything should be back to what passes for normal around here.

  1. Think of how much will get done when it's not so crazy. Great job!

  2. It sounds to me like you are heading in a positive direction with the writing. Keep up the good work and best of luck in week 2!

  3. Moving is such an ordeal. Happy to hear that yours went smoothly. AND you were able to get some writing done in the midst of it all. Impressive!

  4. Well done for getting things done despite moving! I'm not sure that I'd be able to do that. Congrats!

  5. Hope you're settling in okay. You did a lot, all things considered. I don't know how you could concentrate on an outline with everything else going on, so well done. :)
