I haven’t written in days. Ugh. I feel bad for it too. I’ve been on a really strong roll but just hit a Gelatinous Cube of a wall. It’s not a brick wall, because I’ve made some slow progress into chapter 12. I’m very near to being complete with it. But right now it is extremely slow going.
Probably because I had to stop to do a little bit of research. Trying to determine if the small town I’ve created would realistically have any kind of levee or spillway system. It is right on a major river with a smaller tributary running along the north of town. So it would seem plausible to me that they would require some time of system to control water levels.
I also can’t remember what these particular structures are called. The best I can describe them as is the big cement trenches like in Terminator 2. Its the scene where Arnold is driving on a motorcycle and chasing the T1000 in a Semi-Truck. Bah.
I’m aware those are sometimes filled with water and can be very dangerous. But I just can’t remember what they are called.
I’ll do some more research and try to have a breakthrough.
