roe – draft 1 – day 5 – backstory
i squeezed in an hour or so before work today and managed to get my 3 pages, which was great, but which also put me a bit behind the eight ball some of my grading, which i only just finished catching up with. i hate this whole ‘robbing peter to pay paul’ process. of course, i’m doing it to myself.
that said, today’s writing filled out some significant backstory. i’m afraid, though, that it’s the kind of material that i tend to find interesting and engaging, but which won’t actually make it past my beta readers. ah, well, in any case, it will continue to inform what comes after, and that’s the key.
