Progress report

With computer stuff, I wrote a mere 300 words today, but I also outlined the next chapter, which performs the rather important task of getting me out of Exposition Land and into A Plotville, so I'm glad to get that straightened out. As in Trust, handling the exposition is kind of a challenge--right now I'm sort of just roughing it in, you know, "Philippe goes here DESCRIBE STATION." (I'm a big fan of PRIMITIVE ALL CAPS in early drafts.) My hope is that this will help me dole out the exposition in reasonable dollops later--for example, if I see "He walked into the room and saw DESCRIBE PATCH DESCRIBE GEORGE DESCRIBE SHANTI" maybe I can split those things up a bit, especially if there's another DESCRIBE PATCH later on.
