The writing is coming more easily for book 3, now that the timeline is settling. Of course, there are still changes being made as the characters reveal themselves. And a new character showed up! I had no idea he would be in the story. I don't know if he'll ever have a story of his own, but I do like him. He isn't developed much beyond a couple of sentences, but I suspect he's going to grow in importance.
The project is also moving forward. I was a little worried about where it would go from here, but that question was settled today.
I'm endeavoring to write in my heart that I am God's and I trust Him. I'm working on it.
