So I’m still not ready to return to regular posting, but as a sign of good faith, a sign that I have not abandoned my writing, I’m posting a pretty crucial scene from the next chapter of The Best Thing. I was settling into a regular writing schedule when I caught a nasty cold that sidelined me of the marjority of the week. I’ve been having some issues writing, and I think it’s because I’ve been staying particularly married to the scene outline I had planned in the beginning. The pace feels wrong, even sluggish, so I’m revisiting the way I’ve set up the next few chapters to see if I can fix that. I’ll keep you posted, but until then, here’s your preview for Chapter Eight.
