RUYN: Chapters 23 and 24

John and Anna christen Anna's apartment. Then get ready for a night out.

WARNING new writer angst ahead!!: I'm not sure if it's writer's block, lack of self discipline, or just a crazy schedule, but I've made precious little progress on all the things I promised in my last blog post. Ugh. In the process of updating Blind Date, I ran into a formatting issue I haven't solved yet, and with RUYN I am realizing much too late that while the dual-viewpoint thing was fun, it really limits where I want to take the story. Part of me wants to do something like Lubrican does and make a version Bravo that is told in the 3rd person from the beginning. Part of me thinks I should stop the story in a couple of chapters and pick up the characters (and their friends) in a new story. My indecision means that progress on the story has come to a standstill, which is frustrating.

Also it's summer, and the number of things competing for my attention has gone up dramatically over the last few weeks. I'm hoping (fingers crossed!) that everything will back off a little in August and I can get back up to writing 10-15k words a week. We shall see....

As always, your feedback and ideas are like gold to me. The rush from hearing from one of my readers hasn't diminished one bit since I started posting.
