This Week's Topic:
What would be the ideal holiday present for your main character?
My poor dear MC, just wants to get home. Unfortunately, I, as the author, will be heading off anyone going in her direction with any sort of vehicle, teleportation device, seven-league boots, and definitely NO PRINCES OR HORSES ALLOWED, or the story will never happen.
But if you want to give her a gift she'd really appreciate...
Actually, I think my critique group would really appreciate it too, because then she'd finish the cleaning, and we could finally get on with good stuff!
