Kim Harrison introduced me to Bookperk.
And I made a full contingent of characters. Nearly.
Clara and George, her love interest.
Jessamine and Silas -- Clara's friends and family.
Together. I don't have Ichabod. Or Lorelei. Or the bad guy.
I also made some mini-purses. What Ninja. Rocklington. Roc. The one I'm considering calling Gorn, despite his Star Wars figure origins, and two that will go directly into the kid's play box.
What I have not done this week was write. When I have trouble sleeping I try not to write. When my medicines gave me serious insomnia a few weeks ago I didn't have this rule and I wrote nonsense. And it was on a current project. And not limited to just the end. I'd gone back and added half-sentences and confusion throughout. It's taken me longer to fix my insomnia produced ramblings than taking a week off would have cost me. This week, I took the time off.
Next week though... I will write.
