Seeing as Brothers In Arms is such an awesome track and Mark Knopfler is a god, I’m listening to that track today while writing, using Infinite Looper on the Youtube vid since I don’t own the album. I really should own that album. After payday I think I’ll buy it.
Seriously how can you not love this stuff?
Thoughts and Plans:
Not much to say today. I know what I’m doing: Fiarra’s got so much work to do she really starts hating Laik. With a passion. At the moment she mostly is going after the Governor, and I think so far I’ve laid that on far too thick, but I can fix that in the edit. She’s barely met the Governor, she’s had no real contact with the Governor, and while the Governor’s the one at the top of the pile, Laik is the one she’s in contact with, the person who, as far as Fiarra is concerned, is responsible for all the suffering.
And I can’t go forgetting Corun and Teyt, or letting Fiarra forget them. She primary goal is and should still be to find her friends and get out. In fact I think I need to drop almost all of the “bring down this regime” stuff I’ve done so far and focus on this more personal goal for now, only building up the Governor as the big bad after Fiarra’s confrontation with Laik. That’s gonna mean some cutting and moving stuff around later on, but here I am making a note of it. I’ll deal with it when I’ve got a finished manuscript.
Starting writing 20:53.
Stopping at 21:12, with 414 words. Not so great tonight. I need a new task for Fiarra to do and I’m too tired to bother working it out tonight. I did manage to get some sarcasm and a derogatory nickname in, though, so I’m getting the Laik-hate down better today.
