In spite of a bit of uphill-ery, I got there. 1281 words, 62,753 total

And I managed along the way to muddy my feet on Vikings, evolutionary biology, predator psychology, and something that looks like next Monday it could traipse into the realm of the steamy near-miss.

I also had a lot of wicked fun, got in a couple of funny one-liners, and at the end of the day (and the week), I’m pretty pleased by where I am in the novel, and what awful things I’m going to do to my main character next week — all now set up by the casual and off-hand hints in the book related to the items listed above.

So with that, I’m going to take my damned headache and head off into the weekend to put my feet up and NOT think about the stuff I set up today.

I’ll get a much fresher take on all of this if, as I come back to it next Monday, I’ve had a chance for forget why I put that stuff in there, so that I’ll be able to clearly see what fits, and what was overkill.

This is pure How To Think Sideways stuff, and I absolutely love when it clicks like this.

But anyway…

Hope you have a great weekend. I plan to.
