Obviously, as you can tell from the word counts, I only managed to sit down and get any writing done yesterday. That’s partly due to being tired from life in general but also a little writer’s block as I was unsure where to go next. Getting out seems to be the answer when I have writer’s block as at least twice now this month I have got out of the house for a bit then came home just able to write.
What has actually happened in the story is that my FMC has been thinking how her life is going to be potential so very different to her family due to going to a different school, wanting to maybe follow in her grandfather’s footsteps and wondering how much contact there was between her parents and her grandparents. She’s now decided, on one of her last days at home before going to school, she is going to go into town and see how things are for her former classmates. Admittedly, it’s to try to give me word count more than is of any plot importance at the moment. May change.
