Even though I'd spent most of the evening on my Webwriting blog, I managed to finish Chapter 6 and get a start on Chapter 7. Bringing Espinosa and the evil feds back into the story. Can't let Mike and the nanotech team have things too easy...

Finally got some more work on Henderson, after a couple of weeks of holidays and other stuff. Had to review a lot of the current chapter, just to remember what's going on. But the new material worked pretty well.

I need to give the reader a sense of what's going on outside the apartment building and around the world. Life isn't getting any easier for most people. Espinosa and the other FBI types should also be keeping track of Mike, and we need to bring in the homeless people from the park. Lots of strands to keep weaving into the plot...

A warm Sunday afternoon in Vancouver. I've been working not on fiction but on an article for the Globe & Mail--a commentary on US gun fatalities, which over the past 40 years have been about one and quarter million. It's full of statistics, which I love, but they're sometimes a hard sell in the freelance market. Still working on a good kicker for the article--something to bring it up to about 750 words and end it with a bang (so to speak).

Might get some fiction done tonight. But after all those years of freelance nonfiction, I really miss it.
