I still don't have a scene by scene summary, but I've been expanding on character interaction models (how the protagonists get along with other characters). I'm going to keep poking at it and see what happens.

Also, I really do appreciate your posting this so faithfully, Meredith. I may only be a spurious responder, but I always appreciate reading this thread over. I'm hoping to become more of a regular these next few months.

I was not able to write every day during the past week, because I was visiting relatives, but now that Iím back, Iím trying to make up for it. Iím still working on the same story, and have most recently been doing some iterative drafting of difficult or flat scenes to try to find interesting solutions. Now that those scenes are beginning to work better Iím going to move on with the draft. However, I'm still not much further with getting together a full outline, so I need to find some time to do that before I get too lost in the detail.

Iíve also begun to think about setting and genre for a potential NaNo novel this year, and have made a few notes, but nothing's fixed.
