I had a really good day with story planning for L.D. I decided to change things up again (surprise, surprise)
Having my own major injury gave me some much needed perspective on recovery periods, so the smut sadly must be delayed until Chapter 9 (Surrender) But moving the smut to that chapter makes much better sense for the overall theme of the chapter.
Chapter 8 (This Is Madness) is going to be hardest chapter to write, but I’ve mapped out the time line (it spawns 2-3 days to allow for some much needed healing time) But because of the lack of action, I’m afraid its a rather boring, tedious chapter, and thus, a hard one to write.
Chapter 10, is thus far my favourite chapter. It’s almost completely finished….(just need to finish the smut scene) I’ll keep mum on it.
and then there are chapters 11 and 12. And that’s all that is left.
Then before i think I jump into the next part of this story arc (the alliance/Oropher’s death/Thranduil’s rise to kingship) I am going to write a companion piece regarding Galion’s memory from chapter 7. It will be a short story (not planning more than 20-30K words on that one)
