1,049 words. Five pages. This is more like it. Too bad I’m going away next week.
I decided to break things up significantly today, ending Chapter Eight at a much earlier point than planned (the content will still be there, it just will cover another chapter as well) and jumping in to Chapter Nine. Dow and Bessette are starting to run into some interference as they attempt to interview Charlie Adlard—Cole’s boss at the Dennison-Holt Lunar Preservation Commission—in his office, and they’re starting to butt heads over it a little, too. Some things are starting to come to the surface in terms of their ability to trust one-another.
It feels pretty good, though I feel like I’m writing Dow a little too weird again. He keeps leaning that way in my mind, and I’m not sure why. I don’t dislike it, either, it just requires a significant revamp of his character to make it really work, you know? It’s frustrating because I don’t quite know what to do with it right now.
That’s all for me today. As a reminder, I’ll be gone next week while I work on a writing sample to accompany a job application. The usual Monday “Week in Review” post will go up as planned, but I won’t really be around again until the 15th. Might pop in to show you guys a little of what I’m working on, though, if I get to a point where I think it’s okay. It’s pretty cool. I’m excited.
See you guys later.
