Hellion’s back. Need I say more?
But I did manage to get the paragraphs I’d written into some semblance of order with proper transitions, and they made sense (always a good thing). I completed a rough draft of chapter one and dove into two. I got to thinking after I closed down for the day that I was making the opening more complicated writing-wise than I needed to with this darn flashback, so I may turn the first few paragraphs into a prologue that is the future event so I can dispense with all that past perfect crap. I’ve done it (flashbacks) many times before—and effectively (I hope)—but this time it just felt damn hard.
Okay, so all of the above is pretty boring to read about, but since I’ve been on this retreat I haven’t had anyone to talk to about the writing, so I’m pretty much talking to myself here. Wish I found me more fascinating!
