Update on Project Hometown.

As expected, I didn’t get any work done on the revisions to Meet the Larssons.  I did manage to work on the train downtown this morning and again at lunch on the Snowflake Method outline of Project Hometown.  This is a revelatory process; I’m thinking so much more about the plot and the characters that I think writing this second novel will be a very different experience from the first draft of MTL.  Today, as part of Step 5, I finished an 1100-word synopsis of the main character’s story, and a 350-word synopsis of my secondary point-of-view character’s story.  This is far more planning than I did for MTL, and (so far, anyway) a far more structured plot, which will be much better for my alpha and beta readers.

Days since Dec. 1 without seeing a City of Chicago salt truck: 10.  If you see one, please comment about it.

  1. Salt trucks? One of the benefits of living in Schaumburg.

  2. Oh what does he know. He’s at work before the sun comes up and the salt trucks are out.

    • Well, fine, maybe you have functioning trucks, but before the Mayor realized the city was broke, he bought all of the salt on the market. It’s in big piles – there’s one by the lake near Montrose. And it’s ours, ours!
