I hit 15,000 words today and I'm going to finish up chapter 6 tonight. I'm trying to write about cows. I've never milked one before, so I'm depending on the internetz to fill me in. Writing a well researched book was such an amazing feat before the internet! I'm happy to say that every time I think I don't have anything else to write about, a new conflict manifests and needs to be faced. I haven't even planned most of them, they just occur to me as I have the characters moving from point A to point B. My instinct in life is to avoid conflict and smooth over the ones that occur, so it goes against my nature to load problem after problem on this poor girl. It definitely makes for a more interesting plot and better reading though.
