Progrep 54: Of a Froggy Sort

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:

Frog Fork
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

Progrep 53: Paint Problems

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.

Progrep 52: More Dark

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.)

Progrep 51: Dark

Leaves Turning Copper dances in the dark and vomits pain.

(Yeah, it’s one of those cheerful chapters.)

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.
