BOOM! And 20k flag has been waved, ladies and gentlemen! An easy Monday, surprisingly. Normally Mondays after a weekend off are pretty tough to get back in the flow, but having the next couple chapters outlined does help me jump right back into the mix, it seems. I’m so exited to hit this point, even though I’m still nervous about how muddled things get in my mind after the next couple chapters. I do have a decent midpoint I’m working towards, I think, so I’m using that as my main guide. There’s still soooooo much that I can tell will probably need to be foreshadowed and hinted at and truncated and elaborated, but at this point, we’re grinding ahead on a base-layer of words. From there, we can scrap and add as needed. At least, that’s what I’m telling myself. :)
