Finished up Chapter 18 today. The novel is now way over 100 pages. This chapter ended being long and had some tight action that I needed to wrap my head around. All angles needed to be covered and drama and suspense needed to be cranked up. Moving on. A turning point is coming, which i cannot wait to write.
I have to say I am a little lost. I had the pacing , the end of the novel, and how it would lead into a sequel… all of those details were roughly planned in the my head. Then I had an epiphany. Sometimes I hate those, but love them as well. One of the characters in the novel, a main, now has two literary destinies. The latter half of the novels- yes, plural, I’m talking about the series as a whole -would not be affected so much as the immediate novels. But the character and story would benefit from this new avenue I’ve found. Not sure what to do here. I won’t say much, if I explained in more detail my dilemma I would give away crucial details. Sorry! Not going to happen.
Sorry about there being no writing rant. I’ve been tied up with the novel and juggling the nine-to-five and sleep. I will have something soon, hopefully. Till then. Good night!
