That's funny... it felt like I wrote a LOT this week. But only 1,102 more words! Oh, well. 1,102 AWESOME WORDS. That's right, "the" and "and" and "of" - I'm looking at you! :-)

I've been trying to get my characters across a fictional version of one of the bridges that span San Francisco Bay. It's a bridge I don't drive very often, but as luck would have it, I had the opportunity to drive it 3 times this week. Perfect! I got some great notes (which I jotted down after I had safely reached my destination and parked). Notes which include key words like guano and cormorants. Actually, I guess the cormorants come first before the guano, both in real life and fiction. OK, no more blogging about guano tonight - I'm pooped. Good night, blog. Good night, cormorants.
