Did some excellent work yesterday. Finally managed to finish chapter eight which is going to be the longest of them all. I originally planned to write ten chapters but its looking like I’m going to do eleven including the closer/ explanation/ emotional roller coaster.
I’m now in unmanned territory. I’m writing about things that I don’t know. My characters are in a city/ country/ continent that I’ve never visited and I’m sort of having to wing it. The story is still onboard though. That’s the thing I have in my favour.
I also probably made a faux pas in choosing to set my novel in a time before iPhones because ordinarily that would solve everything for me. Oh woe. On we go.
