No, it is not Thursday already, I shall have none of this Thursday nonsense!

7:54 PM now. up to 20,195 words. But there are more serious flaws with this last set. Whole scenes may need to be re-arranged. And I left my narrator behind in a looong flashback, I have mixed feelings about that, because I could certainly bring him back in as observer, but then I lose the sense of being lost in time, of truly being back in that time.
An even more pressing problem is that I went back and forth between I and he, all willy nilly in the flashback, as we watched the main character do some things, and we were him while he did some others.

It's not Thursday that's worrying me, it's the fact that it's just about Christmas again! Who stole Time?!?

Vanilla,

hush...... :)
(don't mention Christmas yet. The relatives come to my house. I am not ready for a stressed out Taffy pull)

And if you catch that time-y Grinch, make him give it back! (he can keep the whoosie whatsits, and roast beast. But really he must give us back time)

Wow, over 20000! That's good!

Taff, if you feel like taking a break, I've tagged you for Seven Random Things. :-)

I know what you mean about stuff needing serious work. My story has several characters, but I think they are all turning into the same character, just with different names. Ugh.

Paul,

Good to know I am not alone.

I keep telling myself, it is okay, just keep going, I am building a framework and it will be easier to see the problems and find the solutions later.
(I hope that is true, for both of us. :) )
