I have written very few words in the last two days—only 705. It’s not that I didn’t have time. The problem was not knowing the ultimate challenge that my characters would be facing. I wracked my brain over and over, and none of the options seemed both big enough and believable enough. This evening I looked at the problem from a different angle, and I think I have a viable solution. I will have to write like a fiend if I want to catch up, but at least now I know where I’m going.
