Part of the reason it has been going so slow this time is that real life has infringed on my writing time a lot in the past couple of months. Then yesterday I was writing the first part of the chapter and decided I needed to know exactly where Julia has been (I had an idea in mind, but it needed details), so I went off doing research on a plausible location. Found the perfect one, too. No hints yet!
I'm hoping to finish the first draft by the second week of April now. I'll make it worth the wait, promise!
