Procrastinatory progress this morning, or perhaps it’s anticipatory, but either way, it’s not adding to the word count: I made a logo image for a blog about the Frog Fork series of novels written by Spencer Farthing, a character in Eyes on the Mountain. The blog is called Frog Fork Tales.

Spencer Farthing’s Frog Fork: A Series of Extremely Short Novels includes the following titles:
More Frog Fork
Yet More Frog Fork
What, Frog Fork?
I Am Not Frog Fork
I Am Frog Fork
We Are Frog Fork
This One Isn’t Titled Frog Fork
Hisham has painted his face with a lumpy mixture of chokecherry juice and gopher snake eggs and walked head-first into a swarm of gnats. Now his face is a gnat graveyard.
Fourteen-year-old boys have style.
Characters are still crawling around in the dark, looking for a way out.
(I forgot to eat breakfast, and now I’ve forgotten to eat lunch! Time to stop, or I’m going to end up like Maggie.)
Leaves Turning Copper dances in the dark and vomits pain.
(Yeah, it’s one of those cheerful chapters.)
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.
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)?
I hit 50,000 words today, about halfway through the novel. Whee!
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.
No fingers on the keyboard today.
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.
