Writing

In the novella, I started expanding a section that I glossed over, and it has now expanded into major battles in the book. I am now getting more of the kind of story that works for the book. At the moment, one group is pinned down and is hoping that help arrives before they are overrun. The situation got so complex that I had to time everything out. It is a challenge. I've even found places to recycle characters.

Now that I have attackers, I can also use some "faces" among the attackers, and their captain. This will be interesting. I thought that I had a little writing to go to wrap up the first section, but I was totally and completely wrong. I had left tension on the table.
