Disclaimer: Welcome to my spoiler-free journal. This is where I record my thoughts and feelings as they pertain to what the hell I just wrote. I may explore writing craft, productivity techniques, bemoan running out of my favorite snack, or anything else. You've been warned!

All problems have solutions.

Sometimes, it can just be incredibly difficult to find those solutions.

I spent all day diving into the minds of my characters, trying to figure out what it is they want, what motivates them, and what’s stopping them from getting those things. Every time I make a breakthrough, something else breaks.

Over and over.

I’m happy to have finally found where a single piece of the puzzle fits. After a week of worldbuilding and very little forward movement, this is good news! Now I just need to get everything else to work. . . .

That’s it for today and this week. Short update! If all goes well, I think I’ll finish the first draft of Sarah’s novel next week. :)
