Not sure which I find a more satisfying achievement… Well, actually, the garage wins. Now I just have to finish a couple boxes in my basement, and it will be finished too. At least my portion of it. Still have a bunch to do for the sewing section of the basement.
I just wrote a scene that I really like, but I doubt will survive the editing process. Why? Because the entire scene is about my female protagonist (there’s also a male protagonist, remember, two separate story threads coming together) who just copied something from a journal to her own journal.
The reason that is meaningful is that she has never used pen and paper in her life. She grew up in a completely computerized world (on the moon) and the concept of using pen and paper is an archaic oddity, like pounding chisels into rock to create a shopping list.
She has to do it though, because that’s the only way to capture thoughts without any chance of someone, or some thing, spying on her.
Anyway, it’s a cool scene, I think. Too bad it probably won’t survive.
