August 7th, 2015

The seventh was a day of exhaustion and brain not work so good. Up too late gaming last night and then the boy woke up at 2 a.m. to seal the insomniac deal. Hence going to bed early and posting this late. (Very late now. Bloody errands.)

Today I Wrote:

One notepad page of structure notes on an urban fantasy book series. (Book 1: Anita Blake. Book 2: Harry Dresden. Book 3: Indiana Jones...)

Today I Read:

The Divide: American Injustice in the Age of the Wealth Gap, by Matt Taibbi, with art by Molly Crabapple. (Follow Friday!) The book examines the phenomenon where our poor are being locked up in ever-increasing numbers for trivial offenses, while the wealthy are enjoying the ability to settle massive, global-crisis level frauds for trivial fines without even admitting wrongdoing. It's damn depressing reading - not many writers get into how a dystopia starts, but you could read worse than Taibbi if you're interested in the subject.
