The Words: 1977 on my Neo.
I worked a little today, but then had a lot of housework to catch up on. I knew I wouldn’t have much time in the evening to write, because after supper today was the only chance my husband and I had to go shopping for Thanksgiving prep food (my family’s Thanksgiving isn’t going to be until Saturday). Still, I didn’t expect to be home as late as we were, and sat down to start writing at around 11 pm. Fortunately, I was able to write a few scenes that didn’t take a lot of thinking.
In many ways, I feel like I am stalling. I keep writing about things that I know won’t be in the story. They’re just not what this story is about. I want to know what happens for myself, and in case there’s another story there, but I really need to get back to the initial “present” time and move on with the story there. I don’t know if the reason I’m stalling is because I want to keep writing about Nathan and Clark, or if it’s because I don’t know for sure what’s going to happen in the “present” time.
The Story: Lorrin has finally been able to return home, and is looking forward to some time off. Unfortunately, the peace in the nation is too tumultuous for a long rest.
We turn our focus to the king, who is angrier than he’s ever been at the northern neighbors and spends some time talking to Nathan and Clark. He has a very big decision in front of him.
