Well, plans change (le sigh). After a nice long chat with a guitar tech at Guitar Center, it looks like it would cost me more than $500 to repair and upgrade the RG! That's only $100 less than just flat-out buying a new Nashville Telecaster.. so.. never mind, on to Craigslist it goes. For now I'll make do with one guitar and see how that works out, since I only play 2-3 times a week and otherwise am writing or working on visual art stuff.
Doing more research for Threshold, I have a good grip on how I want the chapters laid out and what (in general) will happen in each one. There will be 8 or 9 "chapters", 7 being major transitions and 2 being intro/outro kind of chapters. It's based on the stages of alchemical transformation.. heh. I think that structure will work out well.
At this point I'm ready to set up a Scrivener project and start in on it. I have a few draft pages I can drop in, and then start to expand. I have most of the major characters and some of the minor players, so there's nothing stopping me from getting Serious(tm) about this.
When I'm not writing, I'm plotting out an illustrated serial project! Yep, The Vicky Chronicles will rise again! That's my second priority after working on my main novel/novella project. I have all the art assets I need to make it happen, and a good idea for the first few episodes, so hopefully soon I can get some character studies done and crank out some images.. those will end up on my DeviantArt site, which I need to link to some day (lol)!
Rainy outside today, makes for a sleepy day at the office. Thankfully I have a ton of coffee.
