Looks like I'm back on the horse. Inspiration came back to me, and conveniently I'm done with both planting and the big work stuff. Maybe something about that releases constraints on my mind. But the words are flowing again, and that's a good thing.
Everytime I try and write the other guy's story line, I fall short. I think it's just cause I can't transfer into his mindset so easily. So I'll probably end up writing MC#1's storyline first, and then write MC#2.
