So, the novel that was coming together stalled, mostly because I didn't have the right direction in mind.
I did, however, think of a new start to a novel I'd already started. Although I liked the chapter I had written on it, I wasn't moving anywhere with it (it's the sequel to one of my completed novels). The other day, I realized why. Though I loved it, it was the wrong chapter for the beginning of the book. Instead, I went another direction, wrote a new first chapter (and the one I'd already written will still work, I think, later on) and am moving forward.
Maybe things are starting to move again.
