Sorry about the radio silence. Last week, I was dealing with a bunch of job stuff, and then I traveled over the weekend to visit my in-laws. To make up for my absence, today I planned a big post about character development and making characters suffer (something I’ve been wrangling with in my new project), but my dog is experiencing a medical issue. I’m writing this while I wait for our appointment. So, sorry folks. I’ll post when I can, but right now, I’ve got to focus on some other stuff. The absence will continue.
