Y’know, I must admit, I think that’s the best chapter I’ve written so far. I don’t know where all that emotion came from – it’s scary how much I’ve got blocked up, eh?;D I was just so into it I couldn’t stop writing. Obviously, you had Chapter 16 posted yesterday but in the evening, I started Chapter 17 and stayed up until one o’ clock in the morning to get it done. I didn’t feel like it was a duty or anything – I was genuinely enjoying writing this and I was scared because if I was to stop writing half way through the chapter, I’d struggle to finish it the next day. Sometimes I have creative bursts that can last forever until you stop and then you return to the chapter later and find you can’t write a thing.

The chapter song was Redemption by Renfue. I thought about using the song last night when I was writing – I had my ipod on, desperate to find the right song and it suddenly came on so I wrote it down – and it suddenly came on. I was looking for a loud sorrow/angry song and this seemed to fit the bill.

So, Matt’s being a bastard, Summer can’t make up her mind and all the park visitors are gonna be hunting Edward with pitchforks;P Not really. I was really into that chapter last night and it was interesting to read it this morning and see what I had written. ‘Cos bearing in mind I was probably half asleep when writing, God knows what I was actually typing. I assure you I didn’t cut any major dialogue out because of this fact – 100% of this chapter was written from ten ’til one last night(; sammi x
