Seven Writing Links -- Volume 178
Writing hasn't gone as well as I might have hoped these last couple of weeks. Part of it has to do with being extra busy both at work and at home, but mostly it has to do with the current chapter.
(That's the ticket! It's not my fault, it's the chapter's)
You see, I've trapped my protagonist inside a building surrounded by the bad guys. She has some special abilities that will help her escape, but it won't be easy. I haven't yet decided how she's going to accomplish this little trick, especially when I consider the restrictions I put on her powers earlier in the story. I usually have these kind of details worked out long before I begin writing a chapter, but this time I thought I'd just paint my character into a corner and see how she gets out of it.
I'm sure I'll figure it out, it's just going to take a while. Unfortunately, this chapter is due for submission to my critique group in about a week. Doh!
Enjoy the links and have a great week!
