Last Sentence: “We were discussing my theory about your associate here,” Mammon said.

I think I only got about 400 words written yesterday (and that was after sitting at the computer for three hours). I had nothing planned for today, so I was able to make up what I didn't do yesterday in addition to meeting today's goal.

A lot of it was being at a very dull point in the story - one character visits the eye doctor, the other is looking for a lost book. Once I got past those scenes, it got much easier.


Here are the responses I got when I asked people to guess my story from the cover:
I think it has something to do with trains or subways, maybe a mystery on the train.  - Charlotte
Based on the cover and title I'm guessing there is a killer loose in the subway system somewhere?  - Erika Jean
I think it is about a writer who needs to desperately finish his book but is having some psychological battle with a ghost who may or may not be a figment of his imagination. - Brigette
Everyone was partially right. It does involve trains and subways, it is about a writer and there are ghosts...and demons, and grim reapers and probably lots of other supernatural beings! I'm not quite at the point where I want to post a full description (what if I decide to change something?) but I will say what I said over at the NaNoWriMo site: it's a paranormal "bromance." Think of that what you will! ;)
