Quick Update

The chapters are not behaving. I keep moving stuff around, then back again like a room I can't quite organize correctly. I think this is a good sign that things are beginning to take shape.

I know how that sounds: things are beginning to take shape because they are getting hard to shape. I think if you write, that makes sense. Maybe it does even if you don't write.

First three chapters are done.

I think.

Very difficult stuff to write about. I keep going back to read what people have sent me about their experiences.

And no, it's not a book about cutting. It's about a girl who has a regular life and cuts. I can't stand those books that focus on only one behavior because it's just not like that.

But I can only write this story in short periods of time.

Then again, at least three chapters are done. More or less. I think more than less, so that's progress.
