Storywise, most of my major plotlines have changed as well... I made out two characters to be really awesome people (when originally they were supposed to be *bleh* indifferent cameos), only to have to kill them off (with *gasp* their newborn son) in a tragic car accident. *hangs head in shame* I can't seem to write the stoicism and poise of my main secondary character, Allister Thomas. He is stately and academic and reserved. And I can't come up with any way better of saying it. He's supposed to be the epitome of high class academic, one who commands the respect of his peers by the way he holds himself and the way he talks. The worst is when he's angry. I can't seem to express the expressions of cold anger in him. *uuggghhh!*
I finally hit a stopping point, now that my main character is in the hospital with pneumonia following a vicious attack on him, and I'm working through in my head his means of recovery, the community effect his school brings in that his family life leaves out. I am very thankful for this break, the chance to finally concentrate on something else for a few minutes, while I work out the kinks in the storyline... Because once they work out, it'll be nearly impossible to not write it.
