What I Accomplished in the Narrative Today: I changed my chapter file naming convention by adding the name of the viewpoint character. My beat sheet doesn't have a chapter list and I thought by making each scene a chapter I would keep it straight. LOL! I'm in Chapter Nineteen and opening up everything to figure out where I left the characters. I finished Chapter Nineteen, read over the scene notes for Chapter Twenty and realized I have to set up the event that takes place in a previous chapter.
Fave line: She knew the murderers were the ones responsible. He didn't ask how she felt.
What Else I Accomplished Today: The federal tax refund deposited yesterday, so I paid off credit card, paid off the bills that fell between paychecks, put a portion into my hard-to-reach-on-purpose savings account, and kept my Amazon shopping spree under budget even with shipping charges!

What I'm looking forward to: Sherlock Holmes play on the 19th. All my Amazon packages, birthday presents until March! (Not all of what I bought is books, but I got books. No sexy Stephen Colbert though; Amazon doesn't sell that.)

Family-wise, we put off birthday celebrations the weekend of. Mom has friends in the hospital and I have the online game were trying to finish before March, so it works out for everyone to go to Jewel's concert on March 5th.
What I'm not looking forward to: I have to write to my state legislators, I need to finish demolishing the back bedroom that I haven't had time to work on, and I keep running out of time to work on the new craft project I want to try.
