The view outside my window

It’s really hard to write a story set in a hot, tinder-box dry, smoky, volcanic-ash-blowing-in-the-air-and-lava-flowing-down-the-mountainside kind of environment with this view out the office window:

But the sun is now coming out and it’s supposed to warm up today, so hopefully the icicles won’t be around much longer.

Meanwhile back at the ranch, I’m still working on the opening for that new book. It’s a little tricky since it keeps trying to take a decidedly fantasy bend, and it isn’t supposed to be a pure fantasy. It needs to be somewhat grounded in contemporary reality. At least a little. Even if it is about unicorns.

Also, I am bugged by the fact I can’t decide on the hero’s name. I should just call him “Bob” and go on. I can always do a Find/Replace All once he tells me what he really wants to be called. But…it just bugs me.

All in all, the first week of full-time writing is going well. I’ve stayed pretty focused and made good progress toward my goal of having a submission package (including the proposal for this new book and a completed short story) done by the 19th. The muse is being kind.

Back to work…
