I’m working on a prompt for today.  For some strange reason my mind wanders to words that rhyme with routine.

Caffeine, codeine, latrine, hygiene, gangrene, houseclean, morphine.

The theme here seems to be cleanliness and medication.


Muse:  You forgot – scene.
Me:  What would I do without you?


I use Evan Marshall’s book, The Marshall Plan for Novel Writing, when sketching out my scenes.  Mr. Marshall, I’ll call him Evan, uses “sections” as a plotting device.  A section is a single unit of action in a novel.  I became a much more disciplined writer once I started using Evan’s “section” device.

Today I will work on sections for Theodosius and perhaps for the Hildegard project.  I love sections!      

Section, inflexion, direction…rejection.


Muse:  Get to work!!!
