4/14: 338 words. Part of the problem I’m having writing the current chapter — aside from the interference of other life and work events — is that it’s not as exciting as the one that’s coming up on its heels. The current chapter is necessary because the characters have to get from one place to another, and I think it holds the tension and gives everyone a quiet moment before we get to the maelstrom of the next three chapters. But still, I’m ready to be on the other side of it and write the climax of Act 3 (the Ending Payoff), which is the crux of the whole book and will either make the whole trilogy payoff (or not).
