Setting up the road map helped me somewhat. It allowed me to see how much more I need to get through to get to the finale. I still have no idea for the finale, but I have a better idea of what will come at the end of part 3, the 50% to 75% of the novel. After that, I will definitely have to sit down again and come up with the five-point plan. I’m hoping that everything I will have written until then will lead me to a plan. In the meantime, I managed to write almost another 2k words today, taking me just over 32k. Only 18K to go!
And, as always, if you are interested in following along with the first draft, let me know.
