26K words, and I feel like I am writing myself into a corner. Well, that's not entirely correct. I just don't know where the story is supposed to go from here. For a detective-story there's very little detecting going on, which is partly because I haven't the foggiest what's actually supposed to happen.

Ah, the joys of writing in a genre you don't read that much.

This house, with its grief and a broken-down brother, wasn't helping. I was feeling suffocated, and I had only been here for about half a day. Sleep wasn't coming easily to me that night, and I imagined Jake found it hard as well.

“That's officer Barnes to you. Come this way. The sooner we get this over with, the sooner you can walk away. Again.” She turned and led the way to the bull-pen. I got a lot of looks, ranging from curious to somewhat hostile.

My MMC has just run into xenophobia he hadn't realised existed in his village.

"How should I know?" [the baker] said. "I don't pretend to know how those people think."

"The same way we do," Jaden said, and left the shop. He could feel the baker staring at him as he left.

Dear Jaden.

Where the everlasting fuck did you come from? I never meant for Cyna to have a brother. Sure, I needed a reason to have her come back to her home-town, but an estranged sibling was not what I'd had in mind.

I can't tell you how much you may have scuppered what plot I had come up with before you showed up.

Exasperatedly, Bookish Dragon

My FMC is having a fight with her estranged brother.

"Most of you took his side, regardless of who I was. I didn't need that. I still don't need that."

She shook her head. She didn't know, and she wasn't likely to find it out just by walking around.

Take a day off, then start making notes for the next story I want to write. I want to profit from this mindset of writing every day. This NaNovel, I think I'll put away for now, and come back to it later. It's going to need extensive rewriting, and for that I am going to need some fresh eyes.

I've found that I need an outline when I write. It helps me in knowing what I have to write, and hopefully will cut down on 'I have no idea what this place is up to/Why the hell are you quitting your jobs?!'-surprises.

...And I told the boyfriend this, and he's set me the deadline of coming Wednesday of having decided what I want to write. Bless, he is a big support in this. If not for him, I would never have come this far.

"Now then," she said to Meghan, "what's next? Piss off the gods?"

"I was saving that for our anniversary," Meghan said.

And with this, I crossed 50K. I am now at 50,103!

'So much for that one drink', Hava thought to herself, as she was giving her statement to the police-officer. But she would have a good story to tell Meghan. Her partner would find something of value in this.

Something seemed to spark deep inside his head, because his roaring got deeper, and he made a grab for her with one of his wings. She dodged, tumbling away from the claws that narrowly raked her shoulder.

She hadn't wanted to do it like this, but time was of the essence, and people worked better when they were given no choice in the matter. Besides, Hargita would look after him.

After she had done that, she retrieved her partner and left the librarian watching after them. Poor kid.

The one in front said, "You," and motioned for his men to surround them. It was a small room, and this was no easy feat, but they managed to do it regardless.

"Oh, I know that you won't disturb us unnecessarily," she said, causing him to blush again. He really didn't know why she was having this kind of effect on him.

Dear Meghan,

So you're ace. No, nothing wrong with that. It's just that..., did you really have to have the 'Defining the relationship'-talk with Hava while you were still being hunted by the bad guys? Time and a place, people.

Love, your author

She turned to her partner, only to find her reading something on the screen in front of her with a look of horror on her face. "What did you find, a Mills and Boon-novel?"

Hava looked at Meghan, and then back to the Chief, and shrugged. "Fine. I do need to know exactly where the ship is, though."

"That can be arranged."

I wouldn't put it past him if he had set up some kind of dampening field in this cell either, to stop us from doing what I know you are suggesting.

"Come on, we could do with an outlet. Let's go punch something."

"Is that code for scaring the crap out of the junior agents?" Hava asked, as she followed.

"Maybe. They need to be scared good every now and then. Keeps them sharp."

"You're awful. I love it."

"I know you do."
