4/12: After another hiatus, I returned to writing Walls Ascending today. The next few weeks look (at least on paper) moderately unstressful, so hopefully I can maintain some semblance of moving the story forward.
I’ll admit to kicking the can down the road some because (1) the scene I’m currently writing is emotional — for the characters, not me — and difficult, and (2) because I don’t know exactly where the story is going, and that’s really bothering me.
But now I at least know where this scene is going. And that’s all I have to do for the time being — finish this scene. Then I can fret over the next one.
