A very long day. Full work day, then time with family at the Ithaca Festival, bumping into friends and acquaintances old and new. Showing off our daughter ended up being the main activity, as it turned out. I did just under 400 words tonight, and we have a really early start tomorrow, but I’ll have more time in the evening to get Chapter One proper going. I jotted down some ideas for organizing the first part of the novel at work today and that had given me some guidance for the progress of the plot in the first two Chapters. I hope to have a sizable excerpt for your reading pleasure tomorrow!
