The new year has begun, and I still have not completed the first draft of my second novel. Call me lazy or something, but it just didn’t happen. I’m still working in the sagging middle of it because the story took twists and turns I hadn’t anticipated. Rather the opposite, I had thought I was almost done, but then the characters went off and did something completely different, and I was stuck going along.
Have you ever gone out with a bunch of friends, and you thought they were going to one place when they were really going somewhere else? And since they were driving their car, you were stuck with them and the only alternative was to walk home by yourself. Well, that seemed to have happened with Sophie and company. Although Sophie and her friends were traveling in a cart pulled by a mule, I still didn’t feel like walking home alone. So, here we are, in the middle of the mountains, and we are lost, and of course, I have to get everybody out of this mess. Good luck, Gabriele. See you in a few months.
