I’m not sure it was due to divine intervention, but I have finally assembled the skeleton of a plot. It’s been nearly two weeks of teeth gnashing to get to this point. I think I quit the writing gig at least twice during that time, and I’m rarely one to give up hope. That’s how frustrating the whole thing was.
But I think it makes sense.
I think it’s simple.
I think it doesn’t get in the way of the characters and is, rather, a vehicle to show off the characters.
It is, if nothing else, a starting point.
