I'm having a couple problems with story steps. I'm not entirely certain how I'll go with ... hold on. I think I just now saw an answer. I need someone to make a mistake in the number of people who escaped. Easy thing to do.
Also realized that I overlooked one really important little thing that my mc has to do right off the beginning. Time to go back and add that in before I forget again.
I'm looking at a bit over 1000 words tonight and then heading to bed. I have one of those colds that has settled in the right side of my head, and my eye is running tears all night. Very annoying. But I'm close to that goal so I won't have to suffer for much longer -- unless the story takes off again. (grin)
