I’m on page 46 (73 with previous material) and still going strong. But the past week has been more challenging, not only because I’m still playing catch up, but because I’m still struggling with how I feel about the progress of the story.
Overall, though, I’m still happy to be doing this and devoted. And tonight, I broke into an unexpected section–a flashback of the main character’s parents. It’s helping me to get to know them, which is good, since I didn’t have much of a grasp on them before. And it also helps the plot, though it adds more complications I have to work out, too.
It’s the excitement of the unexpected like this that really make writing worth it!
