Day 11 of trying Victoria's book again and I decided to plug it into a new program I downloaded back in January called yWriter5. It really is a great program helping you keep track of characters, locations and props as well as the actual story. I am doing this all because I have run into a block roughly the size of the Great Wall (LOL). I am hoping that breaking the story down this way I can find a chip in the block.

I have decided not to scrap the whole thing and start over. As I was reading through what I already had I found some stuff that was actually usable, so I am now going through and deleting those things which would be inconsistent with my characters new personalities. Although I have to say I am keeping much more than I thought I would also I am considering going into more detail on the six year voyage to the new planet (see January 2 for story description) as well as deepening characters.
