Ugh! I hate hate HATE it when I hit a road block with my writing. First chapters always seem to be the slowest and most difficult to write, especially in this series. I have to balance new material with old material to make sense of what is taking place. It just feels like the start of the book goes so SLOW, and a lot of stuff from book #2 needs to be summed up in book #3 so the story makes sense. Ah, give it some time.... I'll get this. I always do. It also doesn't help that I am using old drafts as a guide and those are getting the snot edited out of them.
