Had a breakthrough this morning…

Had a writing breakthrough this morning. You know those scenes that you just can’t seem to figure out so they take for…e…ver… to finish? Well, I just had the worst one ever. I won’t admit how long it took. But I did it. Finally got the boy and the old man and the tribe of savages on their merry way to the next thing. Thank you, writing muses! I’m free! FREE! FREEEEEEEE!
