Not A Writing Night

Figured out some themes I want to play with in the sequel, so that's good. Going to employ some of the techniques Tim Powers discussed in his seminar Saturday, but I'm not going to get any real writing besides this entry tonight:

Indians vs. Yankees, Cleveland up 3-1 in the top of the third, and Sabathia just struck out Derek Jeter, almost causing Jeter to fall down, Jeter was swinging so hard and missing by so much. Sabathia still needs to settle down a bit; he's overthrowing whenever he tries to keep the Yankees honest and stop them from crowding the plate.

But ... I don't have much more in my head except the book title and the title of the first part: The Sun Also Sets still for the book title and "A Moveable Feast" for the title of part one. The two make good "boxes" into which I can pour plot points, character bios, and a timeline.

Added at 10:50 p.m.*:

Well, that's one game.** I worried a lot in the top of the fifth, and then the Indians kicked their offense into gear, stringing together enough runs to insure victory.

Main difference between this game and other outings when C.C. took the mound? Run support.

* -- Entry would have come sooner, but youngest daughter needed a math quiz typed. It's so much fun typing fractions in Word when it defaults to auto correction.

** -- I'm now that much more unlikely to get the extra room from E! ;-)

Seriously, though, I did not want to play the Yankees in post-season, believing the Indians had a better chance against Boston. Looking forward to tomorrow's game. Announcers put an interesting spin on the series, noting that the Game 1 loser went on to win the 5-game series more often than not.
