Writer’s Sketchbook 4

    Still being contained to typing, I was not able to finish the next chapter tonight.  Instead, I started my character sketch on the next most important character in the story, Daisi De La Fontaine.  While minor, she still plays an important role in the book and I felt bad that she was excluded.  Plus, she is probably my favorite character in the book.
