So far tonight on Seeds of Blood I’ve moved one fragmentary scene into another where it made more sense time and plan-wise. (The characters making the plans, not me. What, do I look like I had this all planned?)
Edited that, and it looks like it’s going to fit and make sense. Whew.
Now… it looks like I have three scenebits I still need, where one character is putting in a last-ditch effort, the Bad Guys are going to try and stop them, and the rest of the good guys are going to give it everything they’ve got.
I also need an edit to one of the scenes after this, ’cause two characters ended up turning up that I didn’t anticipate when I first roughed out the idea. As heroic characters are wont to do.
I think I might work on that edit first, because brain is currently blanking on what the bad guys are going to try in the roughly minute-and-a-half the plan needs to fire. And how our heroes might counter, because they are seriously tapped out right now. Fighting off a whole demonic invasion tends to do that….
But once I get those done? (Probably not tonight, maybe even not tomorrow, but….)
Once I get those done, the final battle scene will finally be complete.
And then it’ll be editing. Lots and lots of editing. But the arc of the story will be done. There is a light at the end of the tunnel.
…Knowing Murphy, it’s probably an oncoming train.
(Then again, maybe that’s why writing Kabaneri fluff helps?)
