Well, her we are at another Weekend Checkin for Nanowrimo. How’s things going, you ask?
I’LL TELL YA HOW’S THINGS GOING.
I got to the point where the momentum seemed to swing to a clear stop. Shit started to hit the fan, and there was a nice tension, the kind of tension that builds when you’re reading a well-crafted love scene (just me?) and you that things can only go one way, and…wall. BIG FRAKING WALL.

I gotta bounce. Only 11k words left, and I need to sleep at some point.
