So, due to friends coming over tonight I only got about 450 words written, fleshing out the end of Hark and Petal's stay at the Gould residence. I'll finish that up tomorrow night and get them moving. That should finish up the prologue and get the story on the way.
I've gotten some useful feedback from several people, for which I thank them. I'm keeping a running list of ideas to add and phrases to rethink. I also find myself going to the plot outline file (which is actually rather thin at the moment) to flesh things out and make connections as I write scenes. This exercise is off to a good start!
Thanks, and keep reading!
