I’ve begun chapter 5. We’re working from mostly scratch from here on out–concepts and characters exist, and themes and plots exist, but settings and actions, all sort of new.
And since we’re first drafting, I expect to dredge through some crap before I find the right solutions. I know where I want to go. Just gotta get there.
I’m also needing to decide where the quitting point of the story is. Esme’s trial? Errol’s trial? Follow Lee’s suggestion to include them both, and use more of a flashback structure?
Let’s write it forward first, see what happens.
Just wish it were going a little easier. It seems a bit of a drudge after the celestial wings of last night’s outtake.
