Got 1307 words, and a few moments of unexpected grace

This book keeps surprising me.

I have my Scene Sentences. I am, in theory, writing to a carefully thought-out outline.

And that’s a very nice theory.

In fact, however, I keep figuring out how to do better stuff than what I planned in those Sentences… and today, playing Beat the Sentence, I had an extraordinary moment of grace when a couple of old movies beloved from my childhood found ways to affect my MC, the terrifying situation in which she finds herself, and managed to both choke me up and make me laugh at the same exact point.

And, boy, is she in a world of hurt.

1307 words, better than my 1250 planned.
