The Selective Conscientious Objection chapter is taking shape...
My goal is to have a start on all the sections I think I need by tomorrow... which is pretty reasonable.
I start teaching summer classes on Monday, so my writing time will be more limited and thus it should be a good time to do the reading/research necessary to flesh out each of the sections I started this week.
Earlier this week I saw an episode of Voyager in which a medical image of a person emerged starting from the skeleton on out to the fully-formed person. I think writing is this way. The initial ideas and argument are the bones. Adding the muscles, tendons and organs is the hard meaty part of the writing and it's all finished off by adding the skin and clothing that's the polishing part of the writing.
So far chapters 1-3 are fully-formed but skinless. Chapter 4 has most of the basic muscle groups in place, but no organs. Chapter 5 is a weird combination -- kind of like a person with nothing below the waist -- (a transporter accident, perhaps) -- what's there is fully-formed and polished, but it's missing a lot.
Yea -- not a bad place to be for mid-June, eh?
