…though I’m writing this on Day 11.
My scenes are getting longer, but that’s because I’m having a hard time finding a way out of them. They end without resolution, and abruptly.
On the other hand, my protagonist (whom we have been following from age 5) is now in 9th grade, so I have a lot to say. As a nerd, and more importantly, as a self-righteous, arrogant prig, I did not have a happy high school experience. I brought a lot of it on myself — but when adults do the kinds of things to one another that teenagers do, they go to prison. If my experience was anywhere close to typical, we all leave adolescence with PTSD. (I just remembered: I need to talk about zits.)
I’m rambling. Maybe to put off yesterday’s stats, which are not impressive. Here they are:
