I've managed to string along three days worth of mediocre dialogue in a scene that should probably be half as long. Likely, I'll need to map out the entirety of this book once I get done with this month's writing. My cast of characters continues to grow and as I continue to write the ones that weren't even a part of the original story idea, I'm liking them a great deal more than the original main character. This being the case, the book is not going to be anywhere near finished at my 40,000 word goal. More shall be revealed.
