i think this is going as quickly as it is because i sit at work all day thinking about what i'm going to write when i come home. so i get home and it's like, "oh, of course, this happens and then this happens." although i'm getting into territory where i'm not sure what happens. i know how the story ends, and i know select in-between things, but how exactly they get from point A to point B...? not sure. i fortunately have the oldest scene in the story, the one that was the first idea i had about the story when i first imagined it when i was...? 9 or so, i think...maybe a little older, caffrey and cheli were the first ones and the others followed later...so that will be very satisfying, to write that scene and write it well. unfortunately, the single most important line in the story when i was a kid may have to be cut.
i should get back to work.
okay, this is some
