Back on Track

Final Word Count: August 23, 2011- 1,234 (3 half pages); 1 journal page

I took C.B. Wentworth’s advice and revisited the part where things started going screwy and the pieces started falling into place. There was no more forcing anything. I flew through the story and the questions of how to advance the story solved themselves. And the biggest tell that I was on the wrong path? The boy character, Charles never showed up.

Oh don’t you worry, I have plans for him but not right now. I have to get her settled in her new town then the characters I’ve introduced int he beginning will show up again and Charles will make his grand appearance. I know, I know, it’s a lot to do and i have a crazy amount of work to do but I look at it this way- it’s my own showdown/gunfight. I can do it but it’ll be tough.

I feel like I’m back on track and all is not lost. It’s not over for another week.

I plugged in some other random pieces and got the following: Cory Doctorow, H.P. Lovecraft, David Foster Wallace, Dan Brown and Margaret Atwood.
