Work continues on the 12th volume of Lazarus Gray – I’ve passed the 17,000 word mark but there have been days that’s been a real slog. This one wraps up things that go all the way back to volume seven so there’s a lot of moving pieces that have to be dealt with, not to mention the fact that there are nearly a dozen main characters, some of them old favorites, some of them we’re seeing for the first time. I usually write with just the bare-bones of a plot in my head but this one has required me to make a few notes and to actually re-read parts of volumes 4, 7 and 11! I hope to be done with the book by the end of January at my current speed but I might be able to do better than that if I get a lot done during the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays. Fingers crossed.
I should wrap up watching season three of Veronica Mars this weekend. It’s really grown on me and I have to say that I finally see where all the love this series has garnered comes from. It’s wonderful.
Also continuing to watch AHS: 1984 (loving it!), Riverdale, and Brooklyn Nine-Nine. Those are my favorites at the moment – but I also want to recommend Dolemite is my Name, a Netflix movie starring Eddie Murphy. It was a lot of fun!
