Nearly 22 kilowords in progress and deciding to do a find and replace on a character name because it’s been bugging me I didn’t like how that name looked next to another character’s when sitting at a table together.

This would be faster if the stupid original name / placeholder hadn’t also been a common English word. Hindsight.

Really happy with the new name, though. It rebalanced something I’d been thinking about elsewhere.

Hit a rough patch where I feel like I completed too many arcs too quickly and trying to figure out what happens. In brainstorming the phrase “Chekhov’s Shotgun Wedding” may have just been appropriate. 🤔

I love how much I hate the characters I’m about to start writing for the current “Project Chekhov’s Shotgun Wedding” section of this work. Finally, some actual antagonists to introduce, only like 28,000 words into this thing. 🙃

Having quite an adventure today in my novel writing time. I went for a very late lunch/early dinner to the cellar pub of a neighborhood Irish Pub (fish and chips today), and a (bag)pipe band recently started warming up (which is cool), and now the power is out on the block and I’m writing by candle and phone light and beer, and this is weird, but so amusing. Pipe band is still warming up, without any power. It’s oddly romantic?

iOS Word has some fun bugs when trying to long form write in it. Icons start to get confused among themselves after a while. Then a few of them just stop working randomly. I’m not surprised not a lot of people spend hours with a Bluetooth keyboard writing on their phones to push the app this hard, but it’s still weird.
