It’s been a long, hard day, and working on both the A to Z blog challenge, and writing this book is taking its toll.
I’m surprised one lot of writing hasn’t impinged on the other.
Meanwhile, back on novel land where Jack is still reeling from the threats being issued by his real father, and torn between the idea of hunting him down, and getting to know more about him, he feels he should be more interested in knowing how and why his mother got involved with a man who eventually went to prison.
To try and further enlist Jack’s help in procuring the diary back, for the forces of good, she is taking him to see her handler, who maybe can shed some light on what is in the diary and how it can help them.
The trouble is, he still doesn’t trust her, and is worried that it might be a ploy to take him into ‘protective’ custody as leverage to get Marjorie to hand the diary over. That’s why he insists it’s in Trafalgar Square, a large open space where rules will have to be observed.
Tomorrow will bring about the rescue of Jack’s mother, some investigation gives rise to a lead that could be the possible place where she is being held.
But is she being held by McCallister, her twin sister, Jacob, or a cabal of all three?
Today’s effort amounts to 4,234 words, for a total, so far, of 56,301.
