As promised, I was back at it today, wrote six pages.Good pages, too. Advanced the story, maintained both the narrative and characters' voices. If I sound like I'm patting myself on the back, I am. For me, even a little—needed—time away from the story can make the resumption of writing a bit bumpy. But not today.
In today's first scene, two of the top three antagonists are working on putting on what they call their big show when they get a phone call. The caller informs them not only has the nature of their scheme been uncovered but an unforeseen opponent will be trying to stop them. This is called ratcheting up the tension. In the second scene, an act of treachery occurs between the sexual predator and his increasingly aggressive enabler. The predator fears the enabler is setting him up to take a fall for a crime the enabler is planning to commit. No honor among perverts.
Day 89 of writing my new novel is done.
