Overcast and cold. The temperature is currently 28˚F. There's snow coming.

Yesterday, I spent more than two hours on "Blind Fish," but I don't think all the lines edits will actually fix what's wrong with the story. So, I may simply cut it from The Dinosaur Tourist. Which is a shame, as there's some good imagery and some interesting concepts. But this story is evidence of the mess my mind was in late 2012, as I wrestled with the Quinn books (ugh) and Dark Horse (argh) and everything else. I just do not have the time or patience right now to truly make "Blind Fish" a better story.

Last night, we watched Robert Zemeckis' Forrest Gump (1994), which Spooky had never seen and I'd not seen since the summer of its release. I recalled liking it, and I was pleased to find that I still like it quite a lot.
