good work for the evening

I just finished breaking up the first two sections of my long-suffering scifi novel into “scenes” – although I realized at some point in the middle that I have some chunk that are in other files besides the massive canonical version I’ve been primarily working off of for at least the last three-four years (since we first got a PC, at least), and possibly some material is still in paper notebooks and/or my novel blog (not linked, for lots of reasons). and I’m cleaning up all the old files scattered through that folder, figuring out what belongs where, etc., etc.

no actual writing, of course, but lots of thinking about the structure of the thing, which is perhaps more to the point right now.
