    MC just went to a spanish-speaking obgyn, but she speaks very little spanish. Husband is now the designated translator but is more interested in chatting with the doc than helping his wife.

    Kevin just jumped off of the roof. He's running from an unnamed policeman, who has a pistol, and Liza is being sarcastic. They will most likely break into the book store soon, and steal some appropriate books.

    Janice's memory was erased, and Paige thinks it's for the better. She joins an alt-country band and helps the singer whose voice she ruined recover her ability.

    The end. (just finished the first draft.)

    Last I recall, my MC was in search of ever higher efficiency of the inexpensive "gun method" design and wanted to research shaped charges, but was afraid (perhaps rightly so!) that his Internet searching on those things would set of alarms and cause the government to track his offline activitiesas well as those online.

    But that's not the one for publication, that's just the one I need to write to get it out of my system.

    Devin is about to steal off into the night to cross the boarder into enemy territory, and is trying very hard, at the moment, to pretend to his friends that nothing's amiss. Difficult as one of them's a telepath. His sister Kyali is about to re-ignite an affair that she knows damned well is likely to end very badly, and is completely missing her brother's odd behavior.

    I'm just about halfway through, which is usually where the really cataclysmic stuff happens. Having fun.

    Which novel?

    In my main WIP Jack and Arkadia just passed the truth spell test and got their first clue, pointing to World's Edge Islands. (And they've been halfway to World's Edge Islands for a while because I can't for the life of me think of a good adventure for them to have once they get there)

    Fully outlined, but only with about a chapter and a half finished. At least I have that damn outline done, though!

    I just started a new sub-book with a new MC:

    Soel is in his cabin answering his mail. he knows his 12 year old son has written him.
    A blogger blogs themselves slobbering
    Quickly they wonder why bothering
    To write every day
    In an impactful way
    While knowing they impact nothing!
