When uninspired, do research on the last project that interested you.

Which was frustrating on its own, because what I was researching didn’t appear to exist. Until I made myself step outside the train of thought, think tangentially, followed a different route, and discovered that it isn’t called what I logically expected it to be called.


Also figured out that I’m going to have to set this book in Canada. Not a bad thing; just that unlike most of my other books, the idea for this one set itself in the US from the get-go. I can’t find enough information about the topic to comfortably set it in the States, though, so Canada it is.

Also, there is no chocolate in the house. This is ungood.

    Bodhi: Unless you know something about the intricacies of New England music competitions, I’m thinking probably not, but you are a sweetheart to have offered!

    Scarlet: ‘Liberate’ your chocolate? You have only to ask!

    HRH: I love you. :)

    You could try the lj community little_details for more about music competitions in New England! You’d be surprised the first-hand accounts and resources people can come up with :)

    Curtana: I even have that LJ community bookmarked and it didn’t occur to me. Argh!

    Well, I’ve gone and changed it in my brain now, and a Canadian setting will be easier in the long run. I’ll probably need to ping the community about the Canadian versions later on, though. Thanks for reminding me!
