Pop went the cork! I'm unstuck! Apparently, getting past whatever it is I need to get past to be able to age my character is going to take some time, which I don't have if I want to win Camp NaNo. So...since I'm rebelling anyway, I decided to write a series of essays instead, and it's going well, so far. I finished Day 6 only 1,777 words behind schedule, so I should be able to catch up today. Feels good.
