Update: LRWG #9 1/4 done

Well, I've passed the quarter mark on the lesson with 860 / 3,000 words. And I've reached another transition point from one scene to the next. This is just like the last time I was stumped. That one took a few months to work around.

There's a part of me that says "go ahead and share it now. Maybe folks can help with the rest." While that may be true, another part of me says "wait until you've finished the story before sharing."

Either way, there are 2,140 words to go and it's slugging along.

This one is nothing like Choices (link), which flowed out like a steady and quiet stream. No, this one comes to me in bits and pieces, a moment here and a moment there. It's been over a year now, since my last submission to my mentor. He's either wondering where my work is or on the verge of telling the school to drop me from his list. This doesn't mean that I'm out of the school- it simply means I'll need a new instructor.

So, why haven't I called to touch base with them? They would simply reset my dead line, giving me 30 days to complete the piece. With the way the story has been 'behaving' I don't know if I could do it in that time frame. not to mention the external distractions I have to deal with on a daily basis- with no end in sight.
