Broke the Chapter 7 Barrier!

The last three weeks I've been stuck on chapter seven of my burlesque novel.  It's been less a not-knowing what to write problem as being interrupted problem.  I only have a two hour block but in the last few weeks something has conspired to creep in each time.  And it's never something I feel comfortable blowing off.  Like the school occupational therapist calling to discuss Alex's program.  Or a charity who gives us money asking about receipts.

But this time, I made it through.  And I wrote the final sentence for chapter 7:  "Taking a deep breath, he descended into Hell."  (Catchy hook but we'll see if it survives rewrites.)

It's slowly coming together.  But I'm still on target for my March 1st deadline.
