After some general struggling, I've managed to polish off the outline for "Threshold". It took a fair amount of sitting down and JUST DOING IT, as well as large quantities of coffee, diet soda, and the occasional potato chip.
Now it sites for a couple of days while I work on a short horror story, then it's a continuity pass over the outline. The more problems I can catch at this stage, the fewer edit passes I'll be making. I'd dive right in but I feel like some idle time away will help me come back with a fresher perspective.
Once I polish off the horror short, I'll pop it up here. It's been a bit of slow going as Real World(tm) things keep interfering. If only I could win the Lotto! Alas but bills must be paid, and
I need to feed myself.
