Thanks guys! It worked!
I figured out part of the problem, too. I was near the end of a chapter and didn't realize it. They always take me by surprise. Kind of like riding a horse at full speed and stopping short at the edge of a cliff.
So that wraps up chapter 28. And I've got 9 previously-written pages for chapter 29. Not bad. But after that, I think I've got at least two chapters of NOTHING. Wide open page as far as the eye can see.
I know what happens, of course.
Oh, wait. Chapter 30's done. Of course it's only one page, but that's all a good letter needs...
31 and 32 though. Man.
So that means 33 is where the birds come in. That's pretty fitting.
Oh, sorry; are you still here? Just mumbling to myself again.
