Finally shrugged off the writing slump I’ve been in for a bit. This bit that I’ve written certainly isn’t the most thrilling bit of the story, but it’s necessary for the plot to unfold the way I have planned. And it sets up the environment a bit more so that there’s not this foggy block from one room to the next within the school. Sure, it’s not necessary to give every brick a name, but there needs to be more explanation about where things are. Just glad to have gotten some writing in over lunch! =D
Summary: A ten-year-old girl named Suzie has her small, close-knit world fall apart around her.
