Now at 10,000+ words. I added about 1,000 words today, meaning that I managed to write 3,000 words during the school semester. It's not much, but it's a huge accomplishment considering how busy I was with my last semester of school. I have hope for this story as it is one where, whenever I sit down to write for it, I can. There is no sitting in front of the computer screen with my mind wandering to other things. If I can continue to work out the plot ahead of where I'm at with the draft, every thing should continue smoothly, and with any luck at a faster pace.
The tone and purpose of the story is developing nicely. Reena lives in a world that is simply unfit for her intelligence and ambition. It should be unfit for any human being. She finds herself stifled under an oftentimes subtle but always pervasive authority. There will be moral conflict along the lines of "don't bite the hand that feeds you" and "when is violence justifiable?". She will make friends. There will be good times.
I didn't put much time into any thing else creative. Just notes here and there and the occasional RPG post.
