Writing Progress (Seth story)

Writing: I came up with the decision Seth has to make, last night. Hurray for insomnia! At least it was good for something. :) I'm going to follow wen_spencer's advice and collect 'cool story bits' for use in the piece as I write it. Now I just need to read up on the type of drug I want to have Seth addeicted to. It is something that I hope would not get too strong a hold on him, the way crystal meth would.

*wry look* I also hope talking about the drug in such terms as this won't betray my extreme naivete about drug addiction. That ignorance is why it is so very important to me to get this right--not only the facts, but also the way it feels to be addicted. If I get that wrong, I might as well throw in the towel. My characters have to be real. Seth is going to have to onvince me that he's addicted. If I don't believe it, how can I expect my readers to?

But hey, I like a challenge. :)
