Yesterday’s twist in Aleksa is already paying dividends. Tonight was primarily dialogue, and what she’s saying answers questions that existed in the later part of the book I’d already written. I understand now both HOW and WHY she did things she did. It’s coming together like a big jigsaw puzzle.
She’s better as a character this way—and her past is in fact adding complexity to the future I have planned for her.
I would have stopped at 500, by the way… but I hate to leave a sentence unfinished. Always afraid I’ll forget what the last part of it was supposed to be.
How are your words coming?
