In non-writing news, I found a dollar on the ground a few minutes ago. So far, it has been the high point of the week.
I passed 10k last night. One goal for the week down. I'm still gunning for 25k by Monday but we'll see how it goes. It's less than 3k a day to meet that goal. I'm pretty sure I can do it as long as the characters cooperate. Also, I plan on staying out really late Thursday night.
Whitlock just met the first of his five people who roomed with the missing girl in college. Since I've never done a first person narrative before and never a mystery with so many characters, every paragraph is a learning experience. What's this woman like? How was her relationship with Amber? How much of Amber's sordid past do I reveal?
Deciding how big of a douche I want to make Amber's biological father is also proving to be a little problematic. He's a career burglar so I can't make him a nice person. On the other hand, I'm thinking about having him be a lazy loser who just tries to get by. I'll probably decide seconds before I write it.
