The last bit of the main fight scene in Seeds of Blood is roughed.
…It’ll take more work. The whole draft will take more work – I’ll probably go through at least 3 more full edit-and-revise rounds before I start formatting into novel-like pages. But the entire sequence of events in the story is there. All the characters, all of what happens, all the odd esoteric facts and lore the bunnies dragged up out of the pits of my library and the internet, laughing maniacally. There. At last.
Note to self: Allow at least one month for the darn Final Climactic Battle Scene in future drafts. At least. Between juggling all the characters in 4-D (space and time) and painting them into various corners I then need to get the heroes out of by the skin of their teeth, it’s exhausting to write.
But it’s roughed. Polishing next – and while polishing can be tedious and tear-your-hair-out looking for the exact right words, at least you’re polishing something that exists, instead of trying to pick what’s exactly right as you’re spinning it out of thin air.
And I managed to pick up all the stray elements that ended up tearing loose in the final scene, and weave them together into something fairly coherent. If somewhat demented. Which, well – if you’re not crazy attacking a demonic horde, there’s something wrong with you….
