26,199I am trotting along. Little by little I will get this novel written.
I'm not sure why this particular section I'm on is taking so long to develop. Interesting. It was supposed to be a short little side trip down some back story. Instead it has developed into a long running segment that is dramatic. Or should be dramatic, but, personally, I think it's dragging itself out. If I were reading this, I think I'd say "get to the point!" But it's a chase scene which is going to end, I think, with a character dying. But I can't be sure. This is the same character who was supposed to die in the plane crash. But he didn't. And what's more? The plane didn't crash - it made an emergency landing and no one died.
Then a new character showed up at the airport. It's the relative of another character - but he hadn't been in the story before. So now I either have another character to weave in somehow, or I will have two deaths for the price of one.
We'll see. I'm done with my words for tonight. But tomorrow, the fabulous Jenny and I will be meeting at Kettleman's for a couple of hours of furious fingergabbing, er, writing.
Maybe tomorrow he'll die and I can get back to the other story! (It's all related, I promise. Except for the two Nora chapters I'm not sure about, yet.)
