JUNE 1st...Brainstorming and thinking of vibrations of attraction.  A short story that I had wrote on love as an assignment.  Can I expand on that story, and write a novel?  The main character is Sten Wolf.  He has just left Milwaukee VAMC, after having heart surgery.  The story takes place at a restaurant outside Green Bay.  Why not make this be chapter one?

JUNE 2nd...The novel has begun at a restaurant outside Green Bay.  The main character, Sten Wolf has just left Madison after successful open heart surgery.  The name of this novel is Vibes Reunion.  Do you believe in love at first sight?  Sten meets this waitress at the restaurant.  Her name is Janet.

JUNE 3rd...The novel is to be 3rd person omniscient, knowing what each character senses?  The attraction of Sten and Janet on first meeting is revealed.

JUNE 4-6th...Into chapter 2.  Getting to know Sten.  Getting to know Janet.  What dark secret will be revealed of Janet in chapter 3?

JUNE 7 & 8...The addition of characters and sub-plots.  The plot is rather simple to start.  Sten wants Janet to start his new life after surgery.  But does Janet want Sten?  Sten is a friend of Bill W.  Janet seems to love her vodka.

JUNE 9-13th...Took my annual trip to Akron, Ohio.  I did much free writing with a pen and tablet gathering much info on scenery and local.  I am up to 4,500 words, having a goal set to do 10,000 for the month of June.
