For a day with no power, it was a surprisingly productive day.
In no particular order, I:
a) figured out how to make my bad guy in book #1 bad-er, which is good because it's been driving me slightly batty. The down side of this is that I have to go back and rewrite some of his sections, but I can do this.
b) plotted out the remainder of short #1, my light-hearted pseudo-super hero quickie.
c) plotted out the dark, boundary-pushing book.
Three bouts of plotting, some reading and lunch with the husband make for a not all-together terrible day.
And the power's back on before dark. Hooray!
