Remember how I mentioned I’ve been dragging myself through this fight scene in Seeds of Blood?
That’s still in progress, but I got the chance to print out the “written so far” bits today. About 20 pages. In 10-point font.
…This is a loooooong fight scene.
It kind of has to be, given all the sub-fights and various backstabs that happen. (Because Evil. It’s a given.) But I didn’t realize it’d be this long. No wonder my brain had it marked as a Problem Area, solve all the smaller problems first….
I do at least have a sketch for about half the various events, and the end written. Hopefully by the time I run out of sketch, I’ll have ideas to sketch the second half.
One of the interesting things is making sure all the characters who made it to the final battle have something important to do. Because if they made it there, they’ve got to be crucial to beating the bad guys!
This has involved plumbing mythology, and at least one call-back to what happened to a detective in A Net of Dawn and Bones. That guy learned a valuable lesson. And someone’s going to find that out the hard way….
