Just finished a long "Mirror Mask" revision phone call with Dave Mckean. They're well into casting, and he's storyboarded almost all of it. I was meant to just be making notes toward the next revision but often wound up just saying "Hang on a sec'" and then typing the sort of dialogue we needed, certain I'd not remember why a line needed to be changed and to what when I came back to it tomorrow. At one point I had a character wittering on about the concept of deja nu -- the feeling that not only have you been through these events before but that last time round you weren't actually wearing anything. I have no idea where that came from, other than the lateness of the hour, and doubt it will survive the next revision, so I record it here for a bemused posterity.
