I started work on chapter nineteen last night. I got about 450 words in. I almost got trapped in the “research mode” cycle. It was such a minor point too. So I just put some place holders there and continued on with the story. I can do the research later during the revisions. That way I know what I want the story to do and could possibly cut down on the amount of time I spend researching since I should know exactly what I want.
So here I am doing my best to avoid the pitfalls of writing avoidance. I’m so close to the end I can taste it. Kind of paper-like and inky.
