Day 90, June 28,2010

If it isn't one thing, it's another. The mouse on my Mac decided to lose full functionality today. The scroll ball will no longer scroll up. Doesn't sound like a big deal, but I scroll up and down all the time. It's one way I make sure I haven't fallen into any verbal cul de sacs, i.e. overusing a particular word.Online help says maybe I can fix it by cleaning it. My extended warranty ran out—last week!—or I'd just replace the damn thing.

Anyway, I got another five pages done today. In scene one, the protagonist catches a break, maybe, by learning the cell phone number of the chief antagonist. If she has her phone on, he'll be able to locate her. Sadly, her phone is off, but he maintains hope that she'll turn it on before long. In the second scene, we learn where the chief antagonist is hiding. Pretty clever place, but surrounded by hostiles all the same. In scene three, we hear how people can justify almost anything, including setting up their own paramilitary force.

A potent brew is being mixed.

Day 90 of writing my new novel is done.
