You’re probably way ahead of me on this, but just in case you aren’t, I’ve discovered a WONDERFUL research source on the internet: http://www.wikipedia.org/

It’s great! All sorts of focused information on the Civil War, which as many of you know, I’m studying in depth.

Would you believe I’m listed, and there’s information about my hometown, Northport, WA, that even I didn’t know.

Whoop-de-do! Stuff like this really makes me happy!

Now, back to work.

Plotting Day

I’m taking what Jayne Ann Krentz calls a plotting day. I have outlines for the new books, and I’ve even got half a chapter of one of them done. But the Qwest man is here about my internet connection and the phone service in the apartment over the barn, which does not make for quiet, introspective writing time. (Mainly because the dogs bark at everyone.) In the afternoon, a man will come to measure for my new front doors. And I’m in the market for a saddle that will fit April’s back and my butt, so there’s that.

Doesn’t sound like plotting, does it? :)

All I can say is, I’m a multi-tasker, like most of you.

Though the term “stick ’em up” is widely used in Western films, it wasn’t actually coined until the 1930’s.
