Now comes the fun part of all those linking scenes and making sure everything reads smoothly.
I will say, I was surprised with how long it took to actually set up the final battle. And I was humming and harring over saving the protagonist but decided against it. I’d already saved one protagonist. I needed one to remain a “baddie” for want of a better word.
The funny thing is – this protagonist has set up a storyline all of his own. I now know if I’m stuck for something in November this year, I can always explore his story. It’s a murky and dark one and works well as “… there, but for the grace of god, ….” If you believe in that sort of thing.
And this protagonist was a little hard to write, but I’m not going to give any spoilers away. I’ve already shocked one person with my first book (old friend, old story), I can’t wait to see how he reacts to this little twist!
