Don't get too excited for me, I'm not sharing any of it here.
I got in a good hour of brainstorming/writing last night. Considering I work late Mondays and had a crummy day at work, I'm proud I got that much done.
I bounced ideas slash asked what I "should" be doing with Adam last week and determined I should first complete the WIP from where it's at. Literally get to a THE END point. That itself is a struggle as I haven't built up enough already written to get to an ending that makes sense. So much is still in my head but I don't want to go back just yet to re-work everything.
Already I'm going over what needs to be re-worked. The antagonist needs to be more of the main antagonist and not just a looming/empty threat. My protagonist needs stronger motivation that fits with the plot. Those are really the big things, those two characters. If I can get the two of them nailed down, I'll be golden with the rest of the story and it'll all come together.
