Finally finished my scene outlines - some scenes became 10a, 10b, 10c, etc. Guess really they are separate scenes but whatever works right now is OK.
I have come up with a new character who I hope will add to the story when it is further in - maybe 2/3 of the way through. Is this a good thing? Hope so.
More thinking time. I need to start writing soon but the first step will be rewriting the first 20,000 words and working the foreshadowing into them.
I am starting to worry about how long this will be. The whole idea was to keep it under 80,000 words this time.
Maybe tighter writing will do it. And better plotting. I do think the earlier drafts were too wordy and not enough action.
We'll see.
