To my faithful readers, I have the entire story for Stranger In a Too Familiar Land outlined, but sometimes my chapter outlines consists of only two or three sentences to describe what should occur that chapter. From there, I expand on that by writing five thousand or so words. I've started and deleted hundreds of words for Chapter 19 but I was not satisfied with the quality of the writing. Simply stated, it appeared stilted or forced. I want the story to keep readers entertained, not bored, so am putting the story into a temporary hiatus.
I hope that by writing something entirely different, without the level of intrigue this story needs, my creative energies will return and I will then complete this story. As I said, the entire story is outlined, so it will be finished, but only when the writing is worth your attention.
Thank you for your understanding.
