Double Jack Double Down

This morning was more new writing on Double Jack. I'm hoping to make my 30 day cutoff, but if I don't, i won't. I want to keep this zone.

Today, I think that I finally pulled a meaning out of this story. Again. I've done that multiple times and they've all gone down in flames. Let's hope that this pulling a climax out of my ass means something and sticks. This time, I looked more seriously at the promises that I made to the reader, letting go of my own desires for the story.

Over the  next few days, I wrap the thing up and see if I've accomplished anything worth talking about, but the wrap won't be done until the wrap is done.
