The Day's Progress

A little less done today than I'd have liked, but I was delayed a bit shuffling some of the scenes I'd already done. The narrative shifts between two points of view, and I realized this morning that I'd spent too much time in the last chapter with one of them, and ended up splitting it into two chapters. Which meant, of course, that I ended up having to split the new chapter I was working on into two, as well, to keep them alternating. None of which was a problem until I got to the end and realized that the bits of business that are happening off screen (which will probably slip in as a third omniscient POV for a couple of paragraphs; a messy solution, but I've not been able to figure a better one) are happening too soon, and need to be pushed back nearer the end.

But that's for tomorrow to sort out. As it stands, I'm probably a couple of writing days away from finishing, three at the most, but since there's a weekend coming up and Allison is off on a shoot in Iowa this weekend I'll be on Georgia Patrol as of tomorrow afternoon through Monday morning, so it'll be next week before I'm through.

No samples this near the end, I'm afraid. Too spoilery.

Of course, as soon as I post this, I figured out a way to work in that third bit of action without switching to a new POV. Next time I hit a snag, I just need to post about it to my blog...
