I didn’t sleep well last night and listened to night sounds—was that rain on the roof, or critter footsteps? At one point I heard something in the kitchen and got up to check. It was a very small bug that was jumping every few seconds and making an inordinate amount of noise for its size. Goodbye, bug. Sorry.
I may have to go over to the Rock House today just so I can read the newspaper online. What’s happening in the world?
I made a trip into Clayton looking for an outfitter store so I could get a long-sleeve T. Didn’t find one, but I did find a Wal-Mart. They didn’t have what I was looking for.
Hambdige—Day 6 (Monday)
Guess what? It’s raining!
It has rained most of the day. During a break midafternoon I went over to the Rock House to check email—Stephanie and Allison came by while I was there—and then I ran into Dillard for cellphone reception and to pick something up at the store.
I have accomplished a fair amount today—writing in the novel and also some blog posts—but I realized I’d gotten off track from my outline a bit. One nice thing about Scrivener is that won’t be hard to reorganize the scenes I’ve written to fit the outline, which I think I will need to do before I write the next bit. Part 1 of the novel is just about done. I’d love to finish Part 2 (of 3 parts) before I leave here on the 13th.
p.s. If you’re sensitive to poison ivy, don’t look at this picture too closely.
