Took a break from novel work to do an outline for a piece about robot religions, which will be for Dissecting Worlds in audio form and this site in text form. Not going to write it until after they’ve covered BSG, though.
Today I planned out the next six chapters. Not sure if I’ll go straight into writing them – need to start working on a bit for a podcast, so I might do some initial planning on that tomorrow to get an idea of what I need to research.
Yesterday I designed the perfect vault. Today I figured out how to crack it. Of course, it’ll go off track, but for now it’s a plan.
Today I came up with a totally secure facility. Impenetrable. Nobody is cracking this baby.
Tomorrow I figure out how my heroes crack it.
Reintroducing one character, and planning another. Time to kick into a new set of problems.
Someone blew up, someone went deaf. Finally done with this bit. Now on to the next bit I have to deal with.
Some nice villainous ranting today. I’ll probably have to break it up in post, but it got a lot of plot out of my head and down onto the page. Next, some action, then some introspection.
Wee bit more action, and a bit of a cliffhanger – which I know how to resolve, for once. Next chapter should hopefully wrap up Chicago and let me get back to Vegas.
More actiony action. Tomorrow more action and a mildly cliched denoument. I’ll fix it in post.
I really need to get better at writing action scenes. I need to get better at thinking of dynamic action stuff, I guess. Maybe I need to start playing that game where everywhere you go you imagine a fight scene there.
