Oh: before I was sick, I expanded the flashback sequence some more. It's up to 22 pages now, and the story is starting to kick in. I caught myself thinking about it as I was falling asleep last night; because I was in that hypnogogic haze I was actually able to see some of the things I was thinking about. That's what made me realize I was thinking about the story in the first place. Heh.
I don't have much energy, nor can I really think of anything to discuss, so this will have to do. Sorry.
