I'm going to try a little experiment. I want to blog everyday for a week and see how that goes. I'm not going to be writing anything deep and meaningful. I just want to force myself to post something everyday and see how it goes.

The posts will generally remain writing or book related. I'm not going to go off on home life and family. I may write about art or art class. Like tomorrow, I have another big painting due and I've been slacking on it like crazy. I need to do some serious work on it tonight, but I don't know if it will get anywhere near done for class tomorrow. I wish I'd committed to it like I had for previous assignments, but it's almost the end of the semester, and I'm starting to feel burned out. Plus, I'm just not interested in doing landscapes.

I also waited until the last moment with SS again. It got written yesterday. It's shorter than my usual installments, but the preceding part was longer, so I felt justified in being brief. Funny thing is that most of what happens in this week's installment is new stuff that wasn't planned in my outline, but what I had planned wasn't very good, and I'm much happier with what happened.

Horace Thistlebottom (and most writers should recognize the surname and get a smile. If you don't recognize it, google it.) is a character I came up with months ago in a very early stab at a sequel. I need to now find the notes I'd written down for him. I hope I have notes because I can't remember everything I'd thought up for him, but I'm afraid that 'everything' I thought up for him may not have been much. We'll see.

Things I looked up while writing chapter 8, pt.2: Toy dog breeds (Scottish Terriers are NOT toy dogs) and sic vs. sick (interchangeable)
