it snowed all morning today, big fat wet flakes that dusted the ground and dripped off the pines in splatters and clumps. i rested mostly. tomorrow we begin the cooking.
i've made fast progress on seventh son. i've gone through all the jack and nicholas chapters, extracted the bits from nicholas i want to keep, woven them into the jack portion. i've also softened lila, and made the ghosts jack sees just a bit more creepy. the next thing to do is to write the three new sarah chapters that will replace the nicholas chapters. but i'm letting that piece stew until after all the turkey-cooking's done :).
and furthermore, the war must end. blessed be.
