Just not into it today. That’s the way it goes.
Verbosity and pacing get worked out in the editting stages after the first draft is done.
Although this piece does introduce a character I didn’t know was going to be involved in the story, but that I think might have a place in it afterall.
Sometimes that’s the way it goes with my writing. Characters will sometimes appear out of nowhere. Completely unplanned or unimagined until I’m writing the sentence that has them walk into the story. Other times secondary or tertiary characters will push their way forward and a forgettable or dismissable one can suddenly strike me as a much more important piece of the overall puzzle.
Mandarin you sneaky little bugger.
