I hope having your own room helps with the killing sister urges! LOL

I actually did get about 4 pages written of my other story yesterday. It's most likely going to be a buffer chapter but at least it's something until I can really figure out where the heck I'm going with that one.

So...Trump. LOL

Thanks! It wasn't too bad. We made it! Now if I can just survive the week without wanting to kill my sister... 🙃

I'm glad you got through your chapter!  I'm sure you did a great job being detailed enough without overexplaining .  Did you have any luck with your other story today?

Hope your drive wasn't that bad.

I got through the explanation and surgery chapter. It was a long one at almost 5,000 words but I think I did a decent job not overexplaining . We shall see. I'm going to open story number two today and see what happens.

Yeah, I agree - he would never run.  It's a nice thought, though!

Thanks!  I will write enough to keep my streak alive, probably not much more than that, but we'll see.  We're staying in a giant cabin, and I will have my own room, so I may be able to get some late-night writing done if I can focus.  My parents and I are riding together, and my sister's family are driving separately.  Cincinnati is the halfway point for both of us, so I think we're gonna meet up there and caravan the rest of the way together.

Good luck with your writing this weekend!  I hope you get through your craniectomy part on Invisible Child if you haven't already and get some ideas for how to wrap up NDA.

Yes, it's a trilogy. I'm not sure exactly how many pages it is because I read it on Kindle, but it felt short. You could easily read it in a day or two on the cruise, depending on how much time you spend reading, but it would make a good vacation read.

I think I am going to bring that one with me. I plan on reading quite a lot. One of my favorite things to do is read by the water and I haven't been able to do that since I've stopped driving. Since I don't think I'll be doing a whole lot of sightseeing, reading outside on the balcony or deck is going to be my go-to choice.

I just checked and Under The Dome is 877 pages

Holy Cow! Well okay then. I remember liking it, but I don't remember it being that long. So take from that what you will. LOL

I think Jon Stewart would make an excellent candidate. He's exactly what we need, which is why he'd never run. No matter how nice or down to earth some of the Presidents seemed to be, you have to be an egomaniac of a certain level to run for office. At least that's my thought. In that aspect, I don't think he'd ever do it.

Good job finishing your chapter! Gotta love the buffer chapters! Will you still be writing while on vacation? Have a safe trip. I'm imagining you're driving there. Are you all traveling together or are you just meeting at Pigeon Forge?

I've said for years that Jon Stewart should run for president with Stephen Colbert as his running mate LOL.  I would vote for them.  Jordan Klepper would be a great VP/debater as well; I love his interviews with Trumpers.

The sexual assault route makes sense, based on the way you described the situation.  I can understand you not wanting to write the actual act in detail, though.  It's fine to fade to black and let readers infer what happened.  The aftermath is more interesting anyway.  Hopefully you can figure out a way to wrap it up.

I was kind of intrigued by the idea of a MacGyver craniectomy LOL, but for Roman's sake, I'm glad he has been rescued and is under the care of medical professionals.  That does make sense to wrap it up and save the rest for a sequel if you want to.

I finished my chapter yesterday and am now trying to figure out how to start the next chapter before I leave for vacation tomorrow. I probably won't post another chapter until I get back, which will give me more time to build up my stash of buffer chapters.
