The Second Draft Slog

Man… 2016 has not been a good year for my writing. Four months in and I'm only at twenty thousand words, and not many of those are usable in Impervious. I know exactly where the book is going…and the next part is going to be awesome to write…but I just can't seem to get past(…)
