After months of struggling with this chapter it is a relief to say that it is finished. Granted every chapter at this point is a first draft, but the stress of being unable to finish this chapter is now off my shoulders. It seems that at this point in every story that I write is always the hardest part. A major turn in the story and my brain tries to shut down on me. For now, the progress must continue, and I will begin on Chapter 19 very soon. Sorry to everyone who has been following the progress of the book. I am doing my best to move along and will hopefully be able to deliver news of the next chapter's completion soon. Thanks for following.
