The parents have gone out and left me in charge of three small hobbits. The smallest hobbit found a small bug and squealed with delight, saying “It’s a weasel!” I assume she was thinking of weevil.
Anyway. Today’s plans involve cleaning up the wood floor area, making pizza, and watching The Lego Movie. Oh! And starting the new version of Shifting Sands. I finished the outline yesterday. Now I’ll I’ve got to do is write.
I’m pretty confident with my outline. Except for the final battle. I’m not exactly sure what happens during the final battle. But that’s one of those things that I think I can leave alone until I get some of the book written.
My hobbits have more theoretical discussions than a group of philosophers… It happens almost every meal. They start off talking about one thing and then someone says “But if…” and argues their point. Actually, I don’t think “discussion” does it justice. “Debate” is probably a closer word. I find it prudent to stay out of these far-fetched arguments. If I try to debate on the practical side, I find myself wondering “Am I really arguing about ninjas?”
All right. Coffee is gone. Time to get to work.
