First, I managed to get more of this draft done: The Harvest. So, the characters are in Mexico, and I am having fun scheming how much better Mexico is going to be than the U.S. Not perfect, but better.
The refuge where Alan and Cherry are going is an ejido, shaped out of one I used to visit as a child. However, Alan and the gang are going to face a real challenge with Toro, who does not believe in the Mexico's communal philosophy. Toro will be corrupted by promises from the former-U.S. What can I say? There are greedy fucks in all timelines, real or imagined.
Now, on a totally different note, today I celebrate my 10 year wedding anniversary with my amazing, supportive amor, Aaron. We were going to go to the original restaurant, Reza's, where had our first date. Then, I remembered he prefers the other location, so we are going there instead. I can't wait to drink some wine and break bread with friends. I am very blessed to have a community that supports us!
OK, so, duty calls. I have to read placement essays and short stories. But, you there keep writing!
May you reach your writing dreams today. #Resist
