Another decent nights sleep, aside from the dreams. The dreams seemed far more real, more immediate and tangible, than anything that's happened since I woke.
Yesterday, having shelved "The Alchemist's Daughter," I turned to a piece I'm calling "The Mermaid of the Concrete Ocean." I wrote 1,047 words. This one has to work, because there's no more time for false leads.
I meant to mention, the woman who will be playing Constance Hopkins in the book trailer for The Red Tree is a painter named Amy Clay. Follow that link, and you can see some of her work.
Also, the eBay auctions continue apace, even in years without a summer, so please do have a look.
Today, I only want to be near the sea.
