- Wed, 16:49: Why am I having so much trouble finding out how long it took to travel from SF to LA in 1883? Is my google-fu weak, or is info not there?
- Wed, 17:33: It was challenging figuring out how known "The Emperor's New Clothes" was in 1883 America, too, but it seems to have been common knowledge.
- Wed, 17:33: The sheer variety of stuff I need to research for Tom Derringer stories can be a bit daunting.
- Wed, 18:50: Five pages of Tom Derringer in the Tunnels of Terror today. He's actually looking for the titular tunnels now, finally.
- Thu, 01:44: I'm trying to decide whether I'm serious about a 4th volume in the series: Tom Derringer and the Kaiser's Kitten.
- Thu, 04:22: Okay, that was a productive day: six pages of Tom Derringer in the Tunnels of Terror, four of Scattered Sparks, plus cover tweaks.

- Tue, 16:40: Had a craving for marshmallows. Discovered they're now sold in the baking supplies aisle rather than the candy aisle. When did that happen?
- Wed, 01:44: I lost two followers on Twitter. Apparently some people prefer not to read about marshmallows. No accounting for tastes.
- Wed, 03:57: 3 pages Tuesday -- one on Scattered Sparks, 2 on Tom Derringer in the Tunnels of Terror. I'd hoped to do better.

- Tue, 04:04: Seven pages of Tom Derringer in the Tunnels of Terror today/tonight. Which is good. Nothing on Scattered Sparks, though, and that's not.

- Mon, 04:29: Two pages of Tom Derringer in the Tunnels of Terror tonight. Also some revisions and fiddling around with cover designs.

- Sun, 04:29: Got no writing done tonight; instead I worked on the cover design for Tom Derringer in the Tunnels of Terror. Which isn't written yet.

- Fri, 16:48: The more research I do on San Francisco in 1883, the more bizarre and fascinating it seems.
- Sat, 00:51: Amazon has Twirling Jennies on sale, half price! https://t.co/gGc2f9ydkW
- Sat, 02:48: 2 pages of Scattered Sparks & 2 pages of Tom Derringer today. Adequate, but unimpressive, and my brain doesn't seem to want to write more.

- Thu, 15:28: Revised Chapter One of Scattered Sparks. It got a page longer. Now working on Chapter Two.
- Thu, 16:44: Three pages of Chapter Two of Scattered Sparks. Tav and his family are learning their world has changed.
- Fri, 04:20: Listening to the U-Liners sing "Pilgrim Hill." Good song. "I am an outlaw/But I'm not a criminal..."
- Fri, 04:21: Thursday's total production: three pages of Scattered Sparks, two pages of Tom Derringer in the Tunnels of Terror. Not bad, could be better.
February 3rd, 2016 (12:08 pm)
- Wed, 03:56: Three more pages of Scattered Sparks. Finished Chapter 1. Not a bad start.
February 2nd, 2016 (03:40 pm)
- Tue, 04:22: Two pages of Scattered Sparks tonight. And "X-Files" was good.

- Sun, 02:17: Saw a semi-pro production of "Lend Me A Tenor" Saturday. Fun show! Very well done
