Managed to get going today by sketching out the next chapter in a bit more detail, and then deliberately starting at the final sequence–skipping the intro and complicating scenes entirely for now. I’ll get back to them, but tonight, I needed a little more adventure. And at least I managed to creep myself out while writing (one thing I hate about writing at the kitchen table is that there are two windows that look out into our very dark backyard and back staircase that are both what I would call “peeping” height from the ground, and boy, let me tell you, don’t ever get it in your head that one time you might glance up and see somebody staring at you from outside–EEK, gives me the creeps). Nothing like writing about disembodied voices spying on people to get you in that kind of mindset!
