On Board With a Progress Report for May 16/17, 2020, from Jeff Baker.

Wrote some of the Friday Flash story; “With Wings on His Feet” as well as a brand-new story inspired by a reference to a Bruce Coville story (on his birthday!) and a memory of the Renaissance Faires at Newman. This morning I surprised myself and wrote two (!!!) pages on the “On Board the Ghannidor-Ra” story from about three years ago. There’s a sword-and-planet-pulp-type market opening up this Fall and I intend to have between 2000 to 7000 words done by then.

As for my plan to have the mystery story finished by today, since I haven’t worked on it for a few days, that plan is out! Give it a couple of weeks: I may have to re-arrange the whole timeline but I can do it! I have some notes written and if I knuckle down I can do it!

The Quarantine schedule seems to be to stay up until about six a.m. and sleep ’till two and then get up, eat, ride the bike, check e-mail and the like, watch a couple of tv shows (which are practically sacrosanct here) and get around to writing after twelve-thirty.  For the last few days I’ve been telling myself that I’d get the writing done in the evening or even afternoon but it gets shunted back to after midnight. Oh well, I’m not knocking getting two pages done, and I will get more done later. Probably.

That’s all for now!
