Could it possibly be... progress? Yes, yes I think it is!
I wrote a few words and made some modifications last night to a particular scene, one of many to-do items that I have for Balfrith's story. It wasn't a huge change, but it definitely improved the scene and actually gave me an idea for a minor tweak to another part of the story. It's always fun to get inspired like that, even if it means one more to-do item.
So, all in all, my net number of to-do items hasn't gone down, since I finished one item but gained another one, however I did make progress on the story and that is always a good thing. Since the scene did not change substantially, I don't think there is any need or value in posting it again.
Hope y'all are having a good week. I have, and am looking forward to a quiet weekend which may include some more writing.
