For the first time in my life, I am wishing a book had footnotes. :P
It wouldn't matter if I hadn't wanted to use one child-of-a-god in particular as a semi-important character in the novel. She must have come from somewhere. Google searches are only giving me questionable summary sites that also have no source info. Grrr.
Have also had a chat with my main character, who opened up real quick and told me what his deal is, so now I have character motivation and origins settled. And sorted out the approximate sequence of events. Am waiting on a couple of library books on Scandinavian/Icelandic culture; may decide I can go to the index cards tomorrow without them.
Yikes. I might be writing this thing on Wednesday.
Well, maybe not so much with the 'yikes'. Theoretically (ha ha) it's straight-forward. The only thing I'm a little edgy about is that it'll be the first novel I'll have written in 1st person. Good thing my boy is a talkative one. Let's see if he can chatter his way through 200 pages.
To end, I find myself compelled to aid matociquala in spreading the word. Or rather, The Skinhead Hamlet.
You can thank me later. ;)
