Dear Charlie:

Well, I crossed the 50,000 word threshhold. Woot!

Now, as my beloved sister discusses on her blog, I am at a difficult part of the book. This is the part where things must appear to be looking up just before everything goes all to Hell. This is the false dawn.

And it's hard as hell to write. Oh, it's easy to get into the snappy dialogue. That, I got. But the emotion? The introspection? The careful weaving of rising action in the plot?

Tough.

So, before I delve into the morass, I'm gonna take a little break and watch a movie. And play some Sudoku, because I haven't stretched my brain beyond the book in quite a little while.

And then? Into the Cave, baby. Let's see if we can't better define the darkest pits of Hell.

Oh, and no one probably noticed, but I removed the Xodtica link from my sidebar. The e-zine hadn't put out an issue in at least a year, but the site was still up, so I left the link for anyone who might want a snippet of the story I'd published there. But no more. Alas, Xodtica has gone the way of many an e-zine.

*sigh*

There goes that publishing credit! Good thing I still have the .pdf of my issue, ne?

Half an uber one! Wow, neechan!

Well damn done! I wouldn't know what the cave feels like, but I hope it gets better. Thanks for the link on my blog and taking the time to check it out between sketching a bestseller opus!

Kudos again!
