Moving forward

Have a pretty good take on the structure of the first two acts of the Cold War story, beginning and middle, and a sense of my ending ... enough, I think, to start writing, fiddling with the opening sentence and paragraph to find the right voice for this. I'll print out the electronic cards I arranged for structure as my security blanket. First, though, a break -- all this thinking is very tiring.

I'm reminded of the studio producer back in the days when screenwriters worked in-house, telling another producer his writers were all lazy, all he ever saw them doing was staring out the window.
