Thank goodness for good friends who keep you honest and on the straight and narrow!
In the future, when KAOS is published and people are going on and on about what a thrill ride it was, you can take it from me that I’ll be thanking my friend P for not allowing this story to get “too girly”.
I was at a point where I had gotten Ima and Micah alone in a cabin in the woods. They are on the run for their lives and I started writing goofy stuff about how their love would grow and blossom, Micah fights his attraction to her but she finally wears him down, blah, blah, blah. . . yawn!
I knew that if it was boring me stupid, my readers would probably become bored too. Then enters my hero on a white steed to save the day. He added a little testosterone in the mix and VOILA! Problem solved.
So I enter week three with anticipatory excitement about what’s going to happen next with these two people.
My total word count: 37425!
