news update: writing is still hard

I figure I could talk about this on Twitter or I could talk about this here, but I have to say that I feel like I'm slowly getting my grip on this story.

There's not a whole lot of it at the moment, only 1500 words right now, but it feels like I have a clearer direction on where I want it to go. It's slow going, but I think I finally have a direction. For me, writing new characters for the first time is all about figuring out who they are to you. How you think they talk and how you think they interact with other people and how you think they interact with each other.

As a writer, I usually architect things, roughing out a beginning, middle, and an end in my head while I'm writing. For this one, I think I'm just going to follow it around for a bit to see where it wants to take me.
