Words/Time: 1 hour working on pre-writing for Book 3 of “Pursuit of Power” trilogy.
I was about to continue the character interview I’ve been working on for the past few days, when I realized I didn’t know how to proceed. I am ready for a pivotal scene that has been in some way looming for years, but I didn’t know the details.
I spent some time working out the geography of the area that this will take place, and then realized that I had a huge question to ask. This thing that I have always assumed would happen in my books…will it happen? Does it need to happen? Can it happen?
Events that have led up to this, events in other books that didn’t exist when I first imagined this sort of “ending” to a huge story arc, have twisted the situation enough that I am questioning what should actually happen. And as of the time I quit for the night, even brainstorming on paper wasn’t helping me any. I may have to be a bit more creative in trying to get past this one.
