The OWW plotting workshop is over. That was fun, interesting, and useful, but took up a lot of time. I've been trying to keep up with my fiction writing every day and have been moderately successful, but I haven't done any crits for about two weeks.

Left radical is 'ear' (耳), used here to mean 'flap/attached item'. Right is 'marker/lance', composed of 'noise' (音) and 'halberd', here used to mean a pole stuck in the ground. This character originally referred to a pole with a sign attached that tradesmen placed outside their shop. Henshall suggests as a mnemonic: 'Job as lancer leave noise in ears.'
