Just a quick note that I haven’t fallen out. Last night I made something of a breakthrough, so my pace should be picking up shortly. I don’t have my laptop handy, but my current wordcount is around 3,000, far short of what it should be, but I’m hoping to make it up. I think I’m past the initial hump.
I having a little trouble writing kids, and I think that’s probably what’s slowing me up. Kids are basically everything you don’t want in a protagonist, as they are, for the most part, victims of circumstance and helpless to affect the world around them. But I think I’ve managed to find a way to use them as observers, so I can get through it. We’ll see.
Write-in tonight! I should be able to post another exciting but hastily written exerpt late this evening!
