Notes from the Revision Cave

Yesterday I didn’t write. I did go out and shop! I now have Lament, The Graveyard Book, and the first of Mervyn Peake’s two Gormenghast novels. And then I watched the excellent Iron Man documentary on the two disk set. So today, best get to work!


Hulk Hercules: Last night, in a flash before sleeping, I decided to do some darling murdering. There will be no grounding, Joe goes to character later land, and the food fight is assigned to the land of orphan scenes, which may or may not be salvaged. I’ve changed some ordering. During the night of the wrestling potluck, we’ll have the Hephaubot planted in the apartment, and later the Hephaubot incident.

Then we’ll move back to school and plans for the Fall Festival (new material) and some investigation into the Hephaubot, moving the spotlight onto Hannah. We’ll also get that visit into the zoo, where Leo asks Diana out.
