Wow. Just reread my post from earlier. It was not my original intent to be so negative.
Not. At. All.
But that's what happens when you let yourself get on a tangent.
Most of what I originally intended to say was about writing, about the novel, about all the things we're uncovering in all the brainstorming we've been doing. What we've uncovered is this:
THIS STORY IS EFFING COMPLEX!
Much more so than we ever thought it would be. It's exhilarating. It's terrifying. It's a lot of work, and a lot of fun. And there's still so much planning we have left to do, lots of wrinkles to smooth out and holes to fill.
I'm going to go work on that now.
Just wanted to let you know that I am, in fact, okay. Guess I just needed to vent some worries and frustration that have been hanging out in my periphery. (Well, not the job thing. That's kind of front and center right now. The college thing is what I mean.)
Alrighty then! Going to go write! :D
