Thank you nice people for putting up with my moodiness. 🙂
Unfortunately the motivational problem solved was a character’s motivation, not my own. So I doubt it will be useful to anybody else.
I’ve been rereading To Kill A Mockingbird yesterday and today. Such good good stuff, even if it does start slow. My absolute favorite of the ‘literature’ I had to read in school.
Plus, protagonist (or at least narrator) is a little girl named Scout. I remember when I first read it, I was shocked. I had to be misunderstanding! It couldn’t be THAT COOL! Literature is so rarely about girls, after all.
