Today was a good writing day. I worked for two hours, nearly finished chapter 8, and untangled some of the pacing problems in this Act. I had a scene in this chapter that needed both beefing and spicing up... and I had a scene in a later chapter that was coming off as forced and slowed down the action. I sliced that later scene up, and dropped the best bits into this one, and I think it's the perfect solution. I still have some chunks left over that I can't just drop, so I'll have to figure out where to fit them in. Plus, this means chapter 11 will have to be pretty much completely rewritten, which *sigh*. But it's worth it if it makes the book better, right?
