Don't get dooced.
'There's never been less interest in an original screenplay.'
I gave myself the day off from the novel but ending up starting a new short story. I'm excited about this: the way I see it right now is as a sort of sci-fi (very loosely sci-fi) "Stand By Me." I did write a fair amount of notes for the next chapter in the novel, chapter 16, sorting things out. It's more new characters, a new setting, an entirely different rhythm from the Kong Island/monster mash plot line. And I came up with some neat character names today, too. There's nothing better than coming up with good, fun character names.
