Fairwil's Shouty Notes to Myself

I'd love to keep posting sneak peeks from the next and last Wilfair book, but hoo boy, the pickings are getting slim. A lot happens, and I don't want to reveal too much. So I come across a section I think will work and then, like five sentences down, someone says something major and I'm like "awwww, dang!" Can't post.

So, something else to share: I write myself shouty notes throughout the document when I want to remember to circle back to something. (A Wilfair rule is all or most ideas or jokes must be revisited at least once.)

Here are some of the shouty self-notes in "Fairwil":

WEIRD SPATIAL
GOMERY DRAWS
??? SUTTON PLAN
SAT IN MY CHAIR AND FELL ASLEEP
YOU SAID WHAT???
MONTY FORWARDING TEXTS
BRAIN KISS
WORLD OF MY HEAD
NEVER WOKEN ANYONE BEFORE

Shouty!

I'll find a few more sneak peeks to post before the end of May. I hope they won't all be this brief:

“Hold this?” Gomery handed me the paper bag. “Don’t look inside.”

So, I like the shouty notes. They make some life sense, too. "Brain kiss," for instance, would be good to just keep around.

But mostly I came over here to say I was playing on the tumblr and my brain screamed GIL BLYTHE before I even consciously registered the picture you posted a while ago. Apparently I have a highly developed Jonathan Crombie identification ability. Who knew?

Actually, I love this and I kind of love the mystery of one-line sneak peeks. I wouldn't be disappointed if you just posted sentences from the book willy-nilly until May.

MAY! So far away!

A sad rhyme.

I once wrote a note to myself that said, "Cake time?!?!" and later, I couldn't remember what I'd meant by it. It's the only time I've ever written myself a book note then not known the meaning later, and I'll forever be intrigued by my own mysteriousness. WHEN IS CAKE TIME? Hopefully soon.
