I have a rough outline of how the dramatic battle in Seeds of Blood should go, including some of the gore and fumbles before it all pulls together.
And for now, I thud. Because – thanks to RL, Drama, and the Dread One Known as M – I’ve hit the end of my mental endurance for a while.
(The latest escapade of the Dread One involved a pot and a stove-knob, and will involve a repair guy tomorrow. Sigh.)
So I’m trying to give my brain a bit of a break by going through other things to pull together notes and outline on other not-yet-finished stuff. A rough “what needs to come next” on River of Stars, for one. Which will hopefully loosen up the wire-taut knots in my nerves when it comes to getting the last bits of Seeds right.
BTW, in case anyone finds it amusing – yes, I do plan for Hakkai to learn to drive in River. I suspect this may be terrifying to some people. Maybe most people.
…Though he kind of has to. No one’s trusting Goku at the wheel, and Gojyo and Sanzo are having problems in that they already knew how to drive.
Which means, under stress, they tend to stomp on the pedals with the same level of force they remember using prior to their various escapades on Shangri-La. With… predictable results.
(And yes, Hakkai will get a Jeep. *G*)
