I sat down this morning to pre-write a post for next week, and ended up doing a rewrite of this story. So far it has around 200 words. I kept a few things, but for the most part its different-

Alex Charming sat, head in her hands, in the cell that had become home in the past eight weeks. The only furnishings were an old metal bed, a rickety three-legged stool, and a large wardrobe. Two doors stood at opposite sides of the room, one leading out to the hall, and the other opened into a small bathroom. Sobs racked the small figure sitting hunched on the stool, masking the sound of approaching footsteps in the hall. It wasn’t until the door began to open that Alex moved, her head snapped up, long golden-red hair cascading down her back. Momentarily blinded by the bright light spilling into the room, she squinted at the shadowy figure now looming in the doorway. Ty favored her with a cruel smile as he stepped into the cell. “I hope you slept well, Alex.” He said in mock concern. “Are you hungry?” She nodded. It had been two, maybe three days since she had eaten anything, and the thought of food was making her feel suddenly faint. “Max is bringing pizza tonight, and if your a good girl you can join us.” His green eyes gleamed at the look of disappointment etched across her face. “Come on, it’s time to call your parents.”

I like this better, but I’m still stuck. I have never been good at “linking” scenes and it shows in a lot of my projects. There’s one called Finn, its basically just 4 or 5 scenes thrown around all willy-nilly with nothing in between.

On a completely different note, Watson and I are watching Harry Potter and The Chamber of Secrets for the first time ever. (We saw The Sorcerers Stone a couple of weeks ago, it STUNK!!!)
