Still doing exploratory writing. I think I'm almost ready to start back in on the manuscript, probably tomorrow. I'll probably go back and forth for a little bit, because that whole middle section is tricky.
And because of that, I'm not sure how the pacing is going to be. Maybe going so slow will help. It gives me a chance to look at places to weave in interesting red herrings and action even in the slow bits.
I really think this draft is ready to hang together, though.
