We'll see how the exercise in plotting turns out. If this works out well, I'll try it out on the Giles-meets-Holmes story, see if I can't improve the plan for that. And then, back to the N-LBS, with renewed confidence. At least that's how I hope it'll work out. Neurosis might always intervene.
So, a decent Sunday. And I even did the dishes.
PS: I also re-read that Frederic Brown short story I mentioned yesterday, "The waveries". The Swain two-sentence summary technique doesn't work on it. There's kinda no question phase. And yet I love the story. Even if it is dangerously close to one of those Heinlein essays-with-dialog. So take that, Dwight V. Swain!
