The blog has declined and slowed a bit from the pace of January. I don't want to take time to "figure out" the blog. I want it to support and not to detract.
The Spook as father. Need to create the new dramatic arc. Work to introduce the Anglo spy and the ideas of his father and of the Anglo's sponsor (the same person: the Spook). Of course, develop all this at the same time I am in the midst of illuminating the Laabuelita char.

What the hell is wrong? It is so difficult to make forward progress.
The problem is I don't know anything at all about the main character of this book. I need to spend some time in his skin. Late 40s. Safe in his "zero". The Pill. Lives in shed above Baobab stump. The job of Damocles is waiting for him. The old woman cares for him (what is his reaction to her?). His past in DF, Chapultepec Park, el Castillo.
What is his everyday in Part One?
(I want to explode.)
