a rough draft of my 20 page paper is done. i’m back to writing my novel, continuing with some very painful experiences for my protagonist. right now, he is walking through snow to safety. w
i can’t help but think of james kim and his family, out and alone in the cold for so long, waiting for their nightmare to end. i saw the map of james kim’s journey and it kills me to see the effort visualized like that. yes, this despite my previous fear of watching the news.
and like james kim, my protagonist struggles onward to safety through the wilderness, one foot in front of the other. will my character become such a good man? i hope so.
