1/28: 451 words. I could have written more, but I spent about 45 minutes plotting out Middle Build II (Act 2, Part 2) since my Forging Bonds framework spreadsheet had been mostly blank. It had never been clear to me how we would get from the climactic and resolution scenes at the end of Middle Build II to the inciting incident of the Ending Payoff. Now, I’m feeling confident about how the story will evolve through that quarter of the book. Or at least, more confident. This is the stage where in the first two books things have taken some unexpected turns.
