It's been ten days now since I started writing. I am finally beginning to come into my voice, but the story is seeming much shorter than it needs to be. I'm right where I want to be, a third of the way through the trip, and a third of the way through the book, but it's becoming more difficult to envision the adventure filling the pages. I suppose this is my slump. Once I hit another 10,000 words, I'll feel better.
