Today I meet with a new dentist's practice. They offer more services and are better located than my current one. (who were also good, but...yeah, I had a massive full on panic attack at the office when the clumsy hygienist started mashing xrayfilm in my mouth and barking at me to bite, and not listening to me, because I could NOT. It was like biting a mouthful of razors, because the film things are usually way too big and it takes someone with skill to get it right, she just mashed them in.)

This place offers dental surgery and deep sedation, which is ok with me. I'd book those appts to coincide with R getting off work to escort me home. Its only a block away.

Did massive work to the book yesterday, and closing in on the finish. changed some plot stuff, to add one more little dagger to the character's heart, in the middle of a crisis, and change how that all falls out.

So yeah, pretty durned happy with how it's really starting to roll.

I have a backlog of new songs, and each week I'll make a master post with links if anyone's interested ( does anyone even READ lj anymore or am I hollering into the void?)

Today, the brainworm is Apoptygma Berzerk "Paranoia" which is pretty good for the current part of the novel, to be honest. I use music while writing to pull myself into the book, and well, block the sound of dog and boy in the background. But writing sans music? nope.

Also soon to decide which POV the second book gets written in. I did this one in a slightly unusual first person present/past, and no one seems to have issue with it, I know so many writing books say "ooooh t'is verboten!" but it was always how the story naturally rolled and I went with it. Third just doesn't always mean best. ( its easy and useful, I give it that. i wrote the bulk of a sci fi book that went in third person. so its not like I cannot do it.)

Part of today might include mapping out book two a little more than the seat of my pants writing book one went with. And booking a hair cut. I'm bribing myself after each dental visit. :D
