8-Aug-13 9:55pm 507 Distracted words in a very tough scene to get motivated to write. My last few nights have been working on world, magic, and character holes, so that's why no new words until today 24,074
5-Aug-13 8:49pm 1,142 I feel like I am really scratching and scraping to get through these last few scenes. They are "transtional" in nature. Perhaps that is why? 23,567

About this project

This started as a Short Story but has grown into a novel; possibly even a series.
