So it’s been 30 days! I made 18 blog posts!

That is slightly better than one every second day. No, I did not write 30 posts in 30 days, for which everyone is likely grateful, but I taught myself to write posts without caring too much about how good or interesting or coherent they are, and to write them in way less time than I used to, so for me the experiment has been a resounding success.

That’s the good news.

The bad news is, my main character blindsided me today with a solution to a problem I cheerfully gave her in book 4, all the while thinking “ah, this’ll make things interesting, I wonder how we’re going to handle this!” and now she is handling it and it hit me hard enough I had to take a big break to think it through. Sadly I can’t change the course of this one and I’m pretty cut up about it.

Happier news tomorrow hopefully. For now I’m gonna nurse this fledgling head-cold and watch bad TV with Mr Beard.
