Everything that Never Happened

…is a go. I finished the high-level outline of the novel last night. I printed the outline this morning — 18 pages — and at lunch hour today I’m going to start into writing the actual first draft. Even after two months of outlining, I’m still really excited about this project, which is a good sign.

Here are the two choices for the epigraph:

Inne ye Ocean yre is an Iland,
On ye Iland yre is a Stone,
Inne ye Stone, a Seed,
Inne ye Seed, the Death of us Alle.

— From the Rutherford Codex, largely considered to be a fake

or

For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?
— Matthew 16:26

Any preferences out there in Reader Land?
