I hadn't written anything for a month and I guess it kind of built up. I was working on the Color/Touch project and I was pure scatterbrain. Every time I put a tool down I lost it. Every time I drilled a hole it was in the wrong place. Every time I did touched a tool I broke something. My long list of things to do that evening was half completed and everything took longer than I wanted. I cut my losses and went to my apartment.

The thought of getting back to this story was the most appealing thing and catching up on the story was refreshing and I couldn't wait to move the story along. It was like reverse writer's block. Every character sounded right. Every scenario had a clear resolution. I was glad to be writing again.

Enough background.

After a month the story had to be reread. Some minor additions and edits in the meantime bolstered the word count for the day. While rereading a few edits were made but only minor things like word choice.

The story continued quickly, mostly in exposition in order to move everyone from North Carolina to Minnesota. Jason took The Flying Machine and left the group. Everyone split up for the trip. Shana challenged the brothers Clary, Motor and Head, to a race to Chicago. Head too the challenge personally. This was Shana's attempt to get cohesion in the group.

To do:
  • Show how Shana knew Motor and Heather were a new couple
  • Reduce overuse of the word "power"
Total word count: 5 230 + 60 228 + 83 897 = 149 355 words
