Part of today’s work is going to end up being edited heavily during the one-pass revision. Because it was world-building. Thinking with my fingers, walking my way through why what’s going on matters and how those actions work, and what their consequences have been.
It was right in the chapter, and parts of it will survive as written in the final draft…
But parts of it are going to have to be dropped into a couple of earlier books.
Still, I love what I got. And while what I wrote is primarily an expository lump, I have, at this point in my life, very good “Expository Lump Distribution Skills”.
And I’ll deploy them during the five-book one-pass revision. <shudder>
