April 2024 - Update #2

 Things go faster some weeks than others, and it helps to know where the story's going next. In the last week, I finished chapter 15, and wrote chapter 16 in 3 days. I finally do have to take a break for taxes, etc., but that's OK, because the next chapter will be mostly a Mac Criomthann tale I haven't written yet, in which "he walked at Samhain on Sliabh na Caillí, and spoke the names of the stars." I have only a vague idea of what will be in it, but I expect he'll tell me about it when I get there, and a mundane break first won't hurt. I also got an idea yesterday about how to solve the problem of his ring -- I knew part of the answer already, but there's a gap.

It's definitely spring here now, with a lot of trees starting to bud out, and grape hyacinths blooming. Next week will be cooler and damper again, with hopefully more rain than snow. I decided to try starting the little current tomatoes from seed, but otherwise buy what I need at the farmer's market which starts early next month. They have a lot of heirloom tomato varieties, and I won't have to house the plants until then.
