Today Chapter 6 gets written! And oh, I like how I’ve ended it. This revision is getting substantially bloodier.
Chapter 7 may be a problem, since I’m knitting together three different pieces. Still, I think I can pull it together in the morning and have the evening free for tweaking Chapter 8. The shape of that one is still the same, it’s just a matter of which characters are taking which roles.
Also, one of the advantages of having to do laundry at the laundromat — and there are few — is that I have a block of time where I’m sitting down away from the computer and away from most other distractions. (Small children who think my Dunkin’ Donuts coffee is the Best Sippy Cup Evar do not count.) So I scrawled notes on several more chapters, including one that has been giving me trouble for some time.
