Exceeding Expectations


Yup, definitely exceeded expectations today on the story. A whopping 1919 words!

And it's shaping up quite nicely. The family dynamics are sorting themselves out and (here's the part I love about writing) I have no idea what's going on. The MC's daughter apparently is ultra talented and her brother desperately craves the same attention she gets from their father. I wasn't expecting that particular tension. I also didn't expect Nik's obvious but subtle disgust at the excesses of the Raydars. He's a total Company man, but he can't help his own visceral reactions to what's going on before his eyes. And the character of ther Raydars is shaping up nicely. They don't play fair, they don't play nice but they're constant winners, so they're ultra popular.

It's almost as if I'm trying to say... the longer a particular thing stays around, the more corrupted and the more like a mockery/parody of its once self it becomes.
