I'm Doing NanoWriMo this year. I started off fast, which is good because I may be traveling on business later in the month.

The book is "Luck Storms". The official synopsis is "Secondary world fantasy, not quite ice-age Earth (but you can see our continents if you squint and ignore where Florida ended up), strange magic system with ecological and climatological effects, middle-aged spinster (that's a pun) librarian heroine, a male lead who is not exactly human any more and a (non-verbal) magical mammoth who doesn't need any uplifting to match humans, thank you very much."

It doesn't adequately explain how peculiar the story is...

At the moment, the pieces I'm writing are going well, but looking forward, I'm deciding what to do about stuff I'm calling "reverse Lewis and Clark" or "East Across the Plains with Mammoth and Pack Llamas".

Tolkien was lucky he was dealing on European scales. It's 980 miles from Boulder CO to St. Louis MO, and 19 hundred some from Boulder to Cape Hatteras. That's a lot of walking in either case. But I can't skip the journey entirely -- there are a couple of key plot points along the way.

Fortunately, I won't need to decide how I'm handling it until this weekend, or maybe next week some time.
