I'm so grateful to have broken through the block on this chapter.  I loathe the phrase "writer's block" because it seems to be caused more by poor planning and time management than anything else.  I'm sure that was my problem here, as well.  At any rate, there will be a chapter up by Wednesday night.  At this point it just remains to be seen how long it will be.  I have a cohesive word-unit, but it's a little shorter than I'd like, and I think the next two sections would fit better in this chapter than the next.  So I will attempt to get them added by Wednesday, but if I don't make it I'll post the chapter as-is.

My Creative Writing prof from college once told us that, in concept, there's no such thing as a "writer's block." It's merely a euphemism for laziness, he said. Even today I'm not sure if I believe him or not, but in any case, I don't like the phrase either.

I'm looking forward to the next chapter! I'll get some reading done tonight. Good luck!

You, know I'm not so sure about the laziness, but I am definitely lazy. However, I will put my butt in the chair in front of the computer and stare at a blank screen for hours, fingers at the keys. I think my problem is that I've reached a point where I'm so worried about what the audience is expecting that I'm afraid to type anything. So I finally just wrote exactly what I wanted to. :)

Wednesday night sounds good to me, it's near the weekend so I have a reason to procrastinate and read it! XD

Congrats on breaking through the block!
