Paying the price for piecemeal
I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised, but after yesterday’s work and post, the unexpected dialogue that I was on the cusp of, so pregnant with potential, hit the page like a lead balloon during this evening’s brief try. Interestingly, it’s not the new character’s mystery that’s the problem, but Kelly’s responses. They’re coming too slowly, too heavily, too forced. I’m pushing too hard; not listening enough. Hopefully tomorrow will be better.
And, unrelatedly, my site was hacked about a week ago, crashing my RSS feed with spam links and other junk, so those following on Facebook, Amazon, Goodreads and elsewhere haven’t seen anything new since the 15th. Not, admittedly, that there’s much to have seen. Ah, well. Fixed now. Just thought you should know.
