I’m rethinking tracking charms after the scene I wrote last night. The charm of yesterday is logical per the invented rules of magic (and provides a nice opportunity for my boys to remind everyone of their age) but unbreakable. That could be problematic. But the scene’s a lot of fun to write, so I’m just letting it run its course for now.
I have two characters who are magically bound to one another. I’m not sure if I want that to mean that they can communicate over long distances or not.
Now I’m calling it quits because sleep sounds good.

Today’s playlist: I’m back on that “poetry” playlist in this morning, then a general shuffle. As I try to write a romantic rendezvous, I’ve switched over to a playlist of love songs.
Songs I’m singing: “Siúil A Rún,” Sara Barellies’ “Love Song,” “Whiskey in the Jar,” “Run Away with Me” from The Unauthorized Autobiography of Samantha Brown, “I Dreamed a Dream” from Les Mis
Cups of tea: 1 caf, 1 decaf, 2 mint, 1 hot water with lemon and honey
Sugar: 2 cookies, and can stress/celebration of “all clears” not count? Plus 1 Starburst.
Hours spent at work: 0!
Hours driving: 0!
Times I’ve gone to smack some skeletons: 0!
What else distracted me: Slow start to the morning, peppered with Phineas and Ferb, last night’s blog posts, and a reminder from a friend that there is more Thrones to watch. I also was distracted by the online comic, Mike: Bookseller. Then Thrones happened, and so did a commentary. The real world that shouldn’t be is a distraction. We might have bought a copy of Merlin series 5 on DVD.
