50,012. It’s a strange thing to have lively characters and a story that isn’t quite all there. And, bright and spiky as dandelions, ideas for a paranormal have popped up. I may be able to start the Silk River re-write in another couple weeks–ahead of schedule. If so, then I might consider the paranormal, or I may pull out A Haunting of Roses, blow off the dust and spiders, and see how I feel about it.
