Gartan’s Book – 10/19/10

335 words.

The protag returns to the captain and after a little preparation, levitates her.  The plan is to try to get the captain out to the stable in the hopes that there’s a horse and a buggy and then she’ll try to get the captain to a healer.  But the captain regains consciousness, struggles a bit, and mentions that the Count is in the sitting room and they have to get him.

While I was working on the outline for this scene, I had an epiphany.  In my outline, I had a bunch of scenes coming up after this but I’ve realized that they’re in the wrong order.  I’m at the climax here.  We’re heading into the final battle.  The set-up scenes that I had after this still need to be written, but I’ve got to find a way to get them before this.  And right now, one of my characters hasn’t been put in the place he needs to be.  I’ve got to work this out.

And I had idea for another Nano possibility.  It’s about a man who comes home from war to find that his brother has become the new king’s best friend and is leading him down the wrong path in ending the war.  (Or, with some re-work, this could actually be part of the other idea I had.)

  1. Won’t it be a relief to get everyone lined up for the Final Battle? That has been a real problem for me, too.

    Brother against brother–we Americans have a lot of baggage with that one. That could be wrenching. Onward.
