Good progress, good conflict… and a whiff of destruction on the wind

Have been working since 7AM — and today flew.

Book 4 took a dangerous turn this morning, as something I’d sort of tripped over in an earlier book took on a life of its own, and unfolded in front of me in a way I had never even imagined.

There is a schism amongst my main character’s most important allies — discovered today while I was writing.

And while it’s great for the plot, and while I knew something sort of like this had to blow up eventually, when it did, it did so in a way I’d never even imagined.

Blew me away.

So 1268 words (just over the 1250 planned), and 30,312 on the novel, so just over one third of what I have planned on Novel Four…

And I love this.
