It's the middle of the night and I can't sleep so I did the only thing I could think of doing. I'm listening to music and writing chapter nine of The Prettiest Thing. Now, writing a chapter when I'm tired but can't sleep may either be the best chapter ever or a very interesting read. We'll see when I post it though because what I'm writing, I love so far. We get to see a little bit more of Alex Dawson and see him as a person more than just Brett's father. I think that a lot of times, we forget that our parents are actually people instead of just mom and dad. And in chapter nine, Brett is going to be reminded of this. Also in this chapter, we're going to have more Monty and his sister, Corey, and at the end, we're going to have a sweet moment between Brett and Ella. These two make me smile and I think it's because of the whole pace of their relationship that I have set. And according to my outline and plans I have for this story, the night of the Homecoming Dance is going to be quite important for almost every character so the entirity of chapter ten is going to be dedicated to it. I am so excited for this story and I love it. I really do. It makes me happy to write - even when I feel like I'm about to fall asleep at my desk.
