I’m enjoying this story, but if it weren’t JuNoWriMo, I’d be heavily editing already. I’m 7k+ words in, and I’m still in Chapter 1. And I also haven’t even gotten Body #2 onscreen yet. I know there’s no hard and fast rule about when/how that kind of thing is “supposed to” happen, but it still seems to me like I’m taking WAY too much time about it.

Building realistic suspense is hard, y’all.

Fling this post into the ether of internetted winds, that it might implant itself in a bazillion other consciousnesses and hasten the onset of my world dominion. ...Wait -- did I say that out loud?Buffer this page
