Reason #toodamnmany why writers drink…

Original opening line of Book 2: “They’d left nothing alive.“

After an entire day of word-wrangling, the new opening line:

“Isobel had been riding for three days, two to her destination and then a turnaround, when she found the bodies.”

Yeah, that works. But dogdamn it, it took me HOURS and BRAIN BLOOD (and at least one walk around the neighborhood) to get the opening pages to finally do what I wanted them to do.

On the plus side, it should get easier today.



Except we had a local market fail: they have semi-sweet chocolate-covered graham crackers, but no dark chocolate-covered graham crackers. How am I supposed to work under these conditions?!
