Moving on from the block. 

I don't think I've gotten this far (in terms of word count or story) before, though it still is disheartening that I've twice as much in cut wordage as I do in actual wordage.

Back from Italy. Good trip. Lots of food and shopping and historical sites. 

The writing has not improved. If I go snippety snip snip again over the same section, I'm just going to quit.* 

Justine Musk wrote about limits. 

I think I may have to give one to what the pathmaker remembers, and proceed from there. Though I honestly don't think I've changed how much she remembers...maybe I need to change some other parameter. 

*Unless I get inspired on how to skip this scene before that.

Contemplating the huge question of: 1st POV vs 3rd POV.

I've come to realise that it's not the POV that I struggle with, it's the tense.

I don't want to write The Pathmaker (which needs a goddamn better name) in first. Not sure my protag's up for it -- or rather, she's up for it, but I don't think she is.

Moreover, I started out thinking that The Pathmaker was somebody else's story...

Hopefully I can spend the next month and a half pondering these questions.

I may delete everything I've written thus far in the journal. Why not? I'll probably write it again sometime in the next month anyway. I'll just keep the sentences I like and see how it goes or something like that.
