Accomplished in fiction: *includes the 1416 from earlier today. While making a break for it, everything goes wrong. Someone makes a mistake and the group of three becomes the band of two.
Accomplished in life: Had a nice afternoon at Blue Lake Park reading Michael Connelly’s The Black Echo.
Other: Yesterday’s episode was a bit, um, searchy. I was searching for the scene. I couldn’t really nail it but I got something down and decided to move ahead and see if hindsight would shed some light on why that bit had been so difficult. Well, already I’ve got a few ideas for how to improve it. The lesson here is that sometimes the right thing to do is to keep on keeping on. Or maybe the lesson is: when it doubt, wrench the plot. Yeah, I like that lesson.
