Progrep 50: Guilt

Lots of guilt going around: Maggie has just realized that the settlement’s destruction is her fault, and Hisham is afraid that he’s killed Leaves Turning Copper.

Progrep 49: Bathroom Vegetables

A typo from an early chapter:

“Steve stopped to take a leek in the bathroom.”

How about if we take that leek and scramble it with the dropped brain (Progrep 35)?


Progrep 48: First Half

I hit 50,000 words today, about halfway through the novel. Whee!

Progrep 47: Time Passing

Flows All Ways has had a vision and is heading toward the settlement while Pestle in Acorn Season shakes a rattle over Maggie’s pointy head.

Progrep 46: Thinking

No fingers on the keyboard today.

Progrep 45: Mud

The aftermath of the quake is occupying most of the characters, Leaves Turning Copper in particular. She’ll be at it for some time.

No, she’s not pushing a broom. She’s pulling Raghida.

Progrep 44: Bird Brain

A snippet from today’s chunk:

I don’t need healing, Maggie thought. A Steller’s jay landed on her head and started scolding. She brushed it away.

Progrep 43: Earthquake!

‘Nuff said.

Progrep 42: Pinochle and Parakeets

At the pinochle party in the aviary, Leaves Turning Copper fends off parakeets but loses the round to Raghida.  Copper agrees to enter the VR park . . . . where Bad Things await.

Progrep 41: VR in the Valley

Leaves Turning Copper has reached the VR settlement in the valley and met Raghida, an eighty-three-year-old woman with a passion for pinochle and parakeets.
