Hey; look at this... I'm re-writing the first long story I ever wrote. The first installment in what started to become a threatened epic. But now, the main character is believably introduced, and her adopted parents now are developing personalities, rather than being shallowly-defined accessories to her adventure and self-discovery. Whee. And... um... I haven't figured out how to properly introduce her best friend. But it's going fairly well.
No, the fact that I'm supposed to be studying instead doesn't bother me at all. :P
