My “output” or writing production has slowed. Unfortunately, it’s not because I’ve hit some kind of roadblock in the story. It’s because of some personal things, specifically with my Dad, who is in hospital, and won’t be coming home. Needless to say, the focus is on family at the moment. The story, though, is getting into a more exciting part as we approach the final conflict and the resolution. I’m pretty sure I know how it’s going to turn out, but I can surprise even myself at times.
