Totally doesn't count

It totally doesn't count that I arranged the plot point notecards for The Winter Wars in their proper order so that I have something like an outline for it.

Nor that I wrote a scene from The True Tale of Carter Hall.

Nor that I did a bit of the synopsis for What We Did To Save the Kingdom.

No, no, no. Not a bit of that counts, you see, because it was scattered. And as long as it's scattered, I can't be said to be working on a new book, because it's not a new book, it's a bunch of new books, just a tiny bit each. And so it's okay. Still doing Sampo revisions as my main bit of attention right now. Not writing a new book. Definitely not. No.
