Round to ten, figure some won’t make that and some will go over. Some will go a lot over.
Figure 25 chapters to the book.

I need fifty good line-per-scenes for this book, and that will be my first order of business this morning. It’s a book about EMTs, emergencies, ERs … I’m pretty familiar with the terrain and the possibilities for good conflict that come up there. And it starts with a bang — literally. So no worries on that catchy first page.

Setting my timer, doing line-per-scenes in ten-minute sprints. Time to get to work.
