The only things I got accomplished were to input the rough outline of my first story, and begin its prologue--I chose not have a 1st chapter per se, rather a current time setting. Its actual 1st chapter will be the story's beginning, of course.
This story is loosely based on how & why my mom "lost" her first child, my 1/2 sister. I'm fictionizing quite alot of this, since my mom is no longer around to tell the details, I only know for certain that Becky [my 1/2 sister] had been taken away from my mom. The rest of my version of the story is pure, plausible fiction.
I'm still unsure of how much to reveal in this, my blog.
