As I mentioned, I'm attempting to keep my writing schedule and minimum word count going for this novel until I complete it. Today I finished the longest chapter of the novel so far. It was a fairly intense sequence as my protagonist attempt to elude the creatures pursuing them. Had some fun building the suspense as they figured out what they were up against, and then entered the desperation mode as each attempt to escape is countered. I even worked in a moment I had in the back of my mind but wasn't sure if I could fit it in. Essentially it's foreshadowing for a later novel, but I found the perfect spot for it.
All in all it was a good solid evening of writing. Next chapter is going to pit my antagonist against her arch-rival (and no that isn't my protagonist. He's nothing but an ant to her. But she should really pay more attention to pest control). I really like this arch-rival character and I'm not sure if she's going to survive this encounter or not. I'm curious to see how it goes.
Music for this run:
- Ghost in the Shell - Kenji Kawai
