NaNo *sigh*  
Still behind. Still finding this difficult. 'Rooks Haven' was almost effortless in comparison, and not a bad story for a rough first draft. This? This changes and shifts and is so very, very uneven. I've started subplots only to abandon them as useless or uninteresting. Still the seeds sit, hopeful, all unwitting that I will not be back to tend them. I feel so cruel.

But I found something today, something I should have suspected. Alys and Thomas, Marian's father, were closer than I ever would have thought. He was not an old man when he lost his wife. It makes sense. So why did it take me so long to find out?

I love how writers can discover things about their characters while writing....truly inspiring. It takes a lot of talent and confidence to let the story come to you...even if it's not how you planned it.
