Yesterday, I finished my research for the Mercedes beginning section of Empty Horizon. I think I have amassed enough information to lie successfully now. I also learned all sorts of great spinning words like “scutching,” and I understand how flax fibers are separated out to make linen.
Quite a bit of what I have written as a first attempt can now be made valid and real. I don’t know how much it will change what happens. Mostly what I need to change are atmospherics, so to speak.
So, this weekend I begin to write. 🙂
