The calm, before the storm.
Sometimes victory can be turned to ashes in your mouth. Some people are just the worst.
Today’s writing turned the first half of the chapter I planned into a full chapter. Which is handy – give me a chapter to write tomorrow. My hero learned a new skill, I will have to use that later.
