Upgrade is starting to be really fun to write.
Today’s work involved pulling a few different threads together, and building the start of the mystery. I like mystery, even if it’s a simple one – mysteries are really motivations in disguise. It’s just that one character doesn’t know what another character’s motivation is, so it seems mysterious. This mystery is not too surprising from a reader perspective, I imagine in my head that only a 3 year old Earth child would have trouble unpicking what’s going on, but it provides sufficient motivation for Mason to do things, that lead to other things, and then the shit hits the fan.

And again today:
Yesterday’s writing was a torrent, to be sure, today was a little less as I’m trying to weave a few things together. It needs a bit of retouching of older stuff, and the taking of notes for future stuff. It’s fun nonetheless.
See you tomorrow.
