*Thud* Got a pair of scenes roughed that together bridge two bits of the first half of the book.
Those two scenes totaled about 2800 words. Yikes. No wonder it took a while.
But with those scenes added, I now have a clean sweep of events through the first about 172 pages of what’s currently a 260-page (108K words) rough draft.
About nine problem areas left to hit. Some are small; others, not so small. I’ll probably try and tackle some of the small ones first, to get them out of the way. The big battle scene will probably need multiple tackles/breaking down into smaller bits.
But for the rest of tonight… Zzzzzz…..
