Day 33 - 1023 Words of Filling in Plot Holes

The next couple of weeks are going to be tough. I have a lot of good material for the next portion of the novel, but the complications are beginning to seep in, and I have to continue to work more and more of the backstory and plot out to shape it all the right way.

In particular I have to weave in the motives and subsequent actions of a couple of secondary characters. What they do affects other things, and it kind of rolls through the story. I also realize this is a great opportunity to raise the stakes.
