There. Another 1010 words on Game. I have introduced all five main characters, hinted at one very minor one, and brought in the only other character who will have any ongoing major part of this. All of this is very light. I'm going to have to add more feel to it, either in the rewrite, or when I finish this section and look it over.
We're barely 2000 words into the story. I'll start doing some serious plot setting soon.
I feel at ease with the story, which is... well, not as bad as bored with it, but not as good as fired up about it, either. But we'll see how it goes from here. It may be that it's just late and my brain is mush. Anything would be 'at ease' at this point.
