Nagging Story Issues

Wham! 422 words and then full stop. Chapter thirteen is bugging me. This would not be a big deal if it weren’t for the fact that I’m on chapter twenty-eight. But thirteen is an important one and it ties almost directly to twenty-eight. So last night was full of maps and images, figuring out how to rewrite the scene on the boat so that I can do all the exposition I want to do and make the fight/escape as logical and plausable as I can. And fretting about chapter thirteen.

I’m not worried that it won’t get done. I’m just worried that I’ve not given enough to the reader back in the middle. I’ve asked Doug to take a look at it. He’s familiar with the story idea and maybe he can point out the part that’s bothering me. Because I don’t seem to be able to see it.

Total word count stands at 113,253.
