I have been ill, so this will be fairly short. I did make progress on the two character profiles as I wanted to, though Melissa’s is possibly incomplete and certainly too short. I started outlining as well, but I’m getting too into the nitty gritty and it just seems like work as well as pigeonholing. I’m going to try something more arc-like this week, hopefully to get direction without feeling tied down. I have had some great ideas about what the story should look like though, so it’s energizing in that way. Hopefully I don’t completely lose steam in this initial section, though I’m thinking after the outline I should shift towards some writing. I do need to do another reread, though…I’m forgetting things like the names of the other fraternities and the last names of characters. Embarrassing.
