The last line of thunderstorms that came through last night took out our power. We had a weird condition of a brown out where half the house worked at reduced power, half didn’t, until the electric company called and then they cut even that, so now we’ve got nothing. I’ve got my laptop and internet card that I use while on tour, so I’m not completely dead in the water, but our house isn’t on the grid that’s hooked up to anything important, so it could be days. Fortunately my mom lives ten minutes away and she has a generator.
Work is going pretty good. I think this short is going to be a good one. I’ve already got three small pieces of non prose material to fit in, and when music shows up in my text, it’s a very good sign. Today, I think I’ll write out some more dialog for chapter two before I get chapter one completely finished–since I can’t turn my work computer on and dialog can be handwritten.
