Yeah baby – 10,000 words down.
Today I encountered some personal conflict between a couple of secondary characters. I knew there was going to be some friction between them, but it wasn’t until today that I actually learned the whole story of the root of their issues. At any rate, they haven’t forgiven each other yet, but they’re keeping it civilised for appearance’s sake. I’m sure it’ll flare up again in the future.
I’m still edging closer to the protagonist’s next trauma, but the more I write, the further away it seems to get (lucky for me, as it means I’m not going to be struggling for words later in the month!)
