I've been sending my progress to a few brave souls for accountability and feedback, and although the feedback is usually in the form of things that need to be reconciled, I loved this reaction to an earlier scene, from a most helpful reader:
(KEPT ME COMPLETELY ENGAGED. BUT, ALL I HAVE TO SAY IS ewwwwwwwwwe)
I guess all that was to say that I have been working on it, and others have been helping me with it, and I can't wait to be done. It's slow going, since even when I cut some things out to make more time for writing, somehow I just fill that time with something else. It's a self discipline issue. I guess I need to get on that.
