Sorry! Hope I didn't confuse anyone by make two chapter 26s for Adaptation. I corrected the post. I hope everyone is liking the story and that those that have been holding off on reading it will maybe jump to the beginning and give it a go.
I was writing chapter 28 this morning before work. Ugh, I started crying, man. That's when I KNOW that the story is getting real. Sometimes as a story teller I don't like myself very much...However the story guides me and I am being true to it. But I don't like seeing little kids in pain--that absolutely tears me apart.
So, for that reason alone I'm going to have to wind up The Trip in the next two chapters. It reminds me of writing Wheels of Steel, when Belinda (Peppermint Patty) was so sick. I wrote her death scene and it freaking tore me apart. I was literally balling as I wrote it. So to hell with it! I unwrote it and was pretty happy. It changed the ENTIRE dynamic of the story having her live but that was another instance when the Writer overruled the story. Thanks for reading.
