I thought Middle Monster was mostly better, but she was up at 4:00 a.m. throwing up again, now joined by Princess Monster and That Man. Of course, it was one of those nights for me where I simply could not get my brain to shut up, where I wasn’t even sure I ever fell asleep (I know I did, but I was awake every 20-30 minutes).
Needless to say, it was a hot tea morning Dark & Early instead of coffee. I don’t think the plague is getting to me, rather just a long sleepless night.
I didn’t title this “Revision Xibalba” even though I was up writing, because I didn’t work on the Mayan story. I finally got a bit of an idea for a short story set in the Beautiful Death Mythomorphoses world. Well, short story may be stretching the truth a bit. It’s a “scene” at least. I have characters and I know their goals. Whether it makes a satisfying short story, or morphs into something else entirely, I don’t know yet.
I also began plotting (loosely) the beginning of Return to Shanhasson for NaNoWriMo. Although I began second guessing myself and wondering if I should try to write Charon’s story instead. I *know* Return very well, except for the beginning. I know only a vague beginning to Charon’s story and nothing after. So Return will definitely be easiest to write fast. I do need to get the next book done in the other world, though, or Sis is going to hunt me down… (Charon is her favorite character)
